FarmHouse Cooperative

FarmHouse Fraternity believes every undergraduate should have a mentor. A mentor who supports the student holistically, providing career support and personal guidance. We seek to connect every undergraduate with a mentor in their chosen field of study. With more than 23,000 living FarmHouse alumni, there’s no shortage of great mentoring relationships to be built.

Any initiated undergraduate FarmHouse member.

While FarmHouse membership is preferred, it is not required. Successful mentors come from all backgrounds and affiliations. Undergraduate FarmHouse members are not eligible to be mentors, but are encouraged to pursue mentorship after completion of their undergraduate degree.

We expect that mentors will set up an intro call or meeting between them and the student to get to know each other and set expectations for the relationship. From there, we expect mentors to stay involved in the student’s academic, professional, and personal endeavors of a student where appropriate. We expect mentees to proactively engage their mentors and seek their advice and/or assistance when necessary. 

While every pairing will communicate differently, we suggest at least bi-weekly conversations.

  • Submit the mentor OR mentee form
  • FarmHouse staff will review submission(s) and create strategic matches

  • Mentors and mentees will be introduced via email with a list of expectations for the relationship

  • FarmHouse will send an annual survey to gauge how mentoring relationships are going, including an option to renew the mentoring pairing

  • Successful mentoring relationships will be recognized at in-person FarmHouse events, in the Pearls & Rubies magazine, social media channels, etc. 

  • Periodic resources/webinars will be provided to mentors/mentees throughout the year

While there are many different perspectives out there on how to write a resume, craft a cover letter, nail your job interview, setup a LinkedIn profile, build your brand, and negotiate a benefits package, here are a few resources we’ve identified that can be useful for your mentoring relationship.
