Challenge #1: Great liberal arts degree from Roanoke College - Not so great job market.
Challenge #2: Roanoke College must ensure that future students have access to that same great liberal arts degree.
Challenge #3: Alums want to participate in leadership giving programs, but do not - quite yet - have the resources to do so.
Solution: Young Associates. Through this new program, Roanoke will offer our recent alumni membership in a leadership giving society at a graduated level. First year out $100; second year out $200; and so on. Young Associates will connect with emerging and established business and community leaders via GoToMeeting webinar, while learning how to navigate today's ever evolving job market. The webinars, in partnership with Career Services will feature topics from job search strategies, resume writing, interviewing, using social media to network and numerous other topics. Young Associates are also honored with a special reception during Alumni Weekend in April.
