New Alumni Networking Site
March 27 @ 12:00 am - August 1 @ 12:00 am
The SHPEP National Program Office (NPO) is excited to launch and share the new online community for our alumni! Almabase was chosen based on its features to foster mentoring relationships amongst our alumni by creating professional and social networking opportunities. Kelli Johnson, JD, Deputy Director of SHPEP, notes several features that allowed Almabase to emerge as a frontrunner:
- A searchable alumni directory that will help facilitate connections between past participants of the program based on various factors, including program site, year of participation, career pathway, current employment, and geographic location.
- It allows users to find a mentor and/or register to mentor other program alumni.
- The site provides customization that is SHPEP-branded—it’s as if we’ve created a personal social networking site just for program participants.
Kelli Johnson, JD, states, “It will be our one-stop-shop for alumni of our program. The online community will also be a place where the NPO and our program sites will post events, as well as job and internship opportunities, publicize news about program alumni, and share other relevant content that our alumni may find useful.”
Almabase is the next step in investing in our alumni, and we hope that it will serve as a centralized hub for alumni engagement. We look forward to connecting with you via our new network!
