Navigating Vocational Success

The Carroll Alumni Association (CHSAA) offers a Carroll Alumni Mentor Program focused on college and vocational choices.  This program is a true fulfillment of our mission of bringing together Carroll alumni, administrators, and faculty/staff for the growth of current students.

  • WHAT: The CHS Alumni Mentor Program provides the framework for positive relationships between local and national alumni and CHS students.  These relationships will help contribute to the student's positive interactions between their school, community and family.  Students will be helped to develop communication skills, as well as vocation, career and college awareness in order to make better life-long decisions and contributions.  Other alumni can also seek help from Alumni Mentors if they are interested in making vocation, career or college changes.
  • WHY: The mentoring program provides an excellent opportunity for students to begin looking at life after Carroll.  Students will have the chance to learn from those who came before them and continued on in certain careers or educational paths.  This program also offers alumni a great way to give back to the Carroll community by offering their time, talent and effort.
  • WHO: All Carroll alumni are invited to be a mentor.  The program provides many levels of involvement (listed below) based on the amount of time alumni can commit to the students.  A mentor application is required to determine commitment level and to appropriately match a mentee.  Parental approval must be received in advance for those students under age 18. 
  • WHEN: The committee will begin reviewing applications as they are received.  Applicants will be contacted regarding next steps.

Mentors provide students and fellow alumni with college- and vocation-related information, advice and support through a variety of ways:
