Mentorship Exchange

Founded by the AIA Charlotte board to address a pressing need in the Charlotte community, the Mentorship Exchange welcomes and actively seeks to encourage students, graduate, emerging professionals, and architects of all levels to participate in career and development programming.

The AIA Mentorship Exchange functions as a conduit between students, young professionals, and experienced professionals through social events throughout the year. These events include Mentorship Mondays hosted by local A/E/C offices, Networking Events, Mock Interviews, Review Prep, and other ways to connect within our industry. The aim of the program is to acknowledge that development is cross generational and experiential. The program seeks to create a network for participants where development, mentorship, and guidance can be fostered.

At each of these social events, we encourage connecting with others that are in a different place in their architecture journey. The intent is to connect in a 1 on 1 setting outside of the organized Mentorship Exchange gatherings to allow for a more sustainable personal and professional mentorship experience that facilitates all schedules and can be maintained throughout your career.

The Mentorship Exchange typically holds kickoff meetings in spring and fall. Visit the AIA Charlotte events calendar to find upcoming events.
