YORK PROFILES & MENTORS
Launched in 2015, our York Profiles & Mentors website allows you to support York students in three ways:
- Upload a profile to showcase your career path
- Be on hand to support with one-to-one mentoring in your own time
- Allow students to contact you with ad-hoc questions.
This platform allows you to do all three or to simply upload a profile, which provides really useful career guidance to students.

“Volunteering at York gives me the chance to inspire those who might not consider higher education and to help graduates who don’t have parental connections. If a day of my time helps encourage under privileged students to get the best start possible to their career then it’s a day well spent.”
Bruce Daisley, YAA Network volunteer
“I have really enjoyed meeting some current York students, the online mentoring platform encourages a professional approach.”
Angela Kitching, Head of Public Affairs (English, Derwent, 2003)
