-MD Ma '11 and Yi Li ’16, Founders of SagePost47
When the idea of SagePost47 first originated, the two of us were in very different places in life: a young alum three years out of college on a great career track, and a sophomore in college still figuring out her major. However, we both recognized the importance of mentorship in our life and wanted to bring it to the broader Sagehen community.
In 2014, we piloted a small test program to assess the demand of a casual yet genuine young alumni mentorship program on Pomona’s campus. The pilot was well received and based on the learnings we gathered, we decided to officially launch the program in Fall 2015.
Our mentors have expressed great interest in speaking with students despite busy work and life schedules, and we want to thank them for taking the time to give back to the Pomona community! Chirp!
Also, special thanks to the Career Development Office and The Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement for the strategic alliance we have developed going forward!
