This is the kind of access you came to DC for.

The guiding principle of GU Politics is that “Public Service is a good thing. Politics can be too.” The goal of the Mentorship Program is to connect students with leaders in politics and public service – the practitioners who are actively engaged in the real world of politics.

We believe that mentorship is a two-way street – there is as much for students to learn from a mentor as there is for a mentor to learn from students. Mentors and students will be paired one-on-one, based on mutual interest, for one academic semester. The most successful relationships will outlive the official mentorship term and we encourage the connections to continue!

The Commitment:

– Mentors and students meet 1x/month
– Mentors will find opportunities for students to “shadow” their work
– Mentors and mentees will be respectful of each other’s time
– Mentees will participate in Mentee Orientation at beginning of semester
