Peer Learning & Alumni Networking (PLAN) Connector Program Recap

Peer Learning & Alumni Networking (PLAN) Connector Program Recap

The fourth annual MYPAC Planning Alumni Network (PLAN) Connector Program successfully wrapped up in June, marking another year of successful mentorship and professional growth.

This year the program brought together 13 mentorship pairs consisting of current MES students and esteemed MES alumni mentors, who volunteered their time and expertise.

Launched in 2021, the PLAN Connector Program was established in response to students' requests for more mentorship opportunities. The program's primary aim is to facilitate meaningful connections between students and alumni professionals in the planning field, creating a robust network that nurtures both personal and professional development.

Throughout the program, students benefited immensely from the experience and knowledge of their alumni mentors. These mentorship relationships provided students with practical insights into the planning industry, enhanced their understanding of real-world applications, and helped them navigate the transition from academic to professional life.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all our Alumni Mentors for their guidance and valuable time. Your commitment and support make this program a resounding success.

As we look forward to the future, we are excited to announce that planning for next year's program is already underway. Stay tuned for more details and opportunities to get involved in this enriching initiative.
