According to the University of Hong Kong Mentorship Programme, " Mentors (overseas) are local counselors, guardians and friends for HKU students in foreign country for exchange studies. During the students' stay in their respective universities, they will touch base with their Mentors and develop a supportive one-to-one mentoring relationship. This two-way relationship is designed to facilitate the holistic development of the students."

For more information, please visit http://www.mentorship.hku.hk.  Holly Tang 鄧秀明 (htang@hku.hk) is in charge of the programme.

Each semester, HKUAANE supports the HKU Mentorship Program in providing  alumni mentors to HKU exchange students studying in colleges in Massachusetts and other New England  states. The number of mentees have ranged from 2 to 10. Usually, there are more exchange students in the fall semester. These are some of the colleges that have hosted HKU undergraduate exchange students:  Bentley College, Boston College, Boston University, Emerson College, Harvard College, MIT, Mt. Holyoke College,  Northeastern University, Tufts University,  and Wellesley College

Among the current members of HKUAANE, these have served as mentors:

Abu Abdullah, Kin-Sang Cho, Son-Mey Chiu, Doris Chow, Tianshi Fang,  Mengyan Rae Flanagan,  Dominic Foo, Kira Fu,  Christopher Hope, Vivienne Hsu,  Anthony Lam, Jenny Lau, Amy Leung, Connie Louie,  Simon Nip, Tatfong Ng, Chi-Sang Poon, Keith Wong, Sau-Fong Siu, Yum-Tong Siu, Florence Yong.

Jing Fan and Roy Chan, who recently left Boston, have also served as mentors to many students.  

If you wish to become a mentor at HKUAANE, please review and complete the Mentors Guidelines and  Mentor Enrollment Form, and send an email to contact@hkuaane.org  The commitment is for one semester only. You may choose to mentor more than one student each semester.

All exchange students, regardless of whether they have signed up for mentors, are invited to all HKUAANE events.
