FLI Mentorship Program

CLIENT
Stanford First Generation and Low-Income (FLI) Office
Project TYPE:
Program Design
Project YEAR:
2021-22

The mission of the Stanford First Generation and Low-Income (FLI) Office is to provide holistic support and community among first generation, low-income, transfers, current/former foster youth and FLI graduate students at Stanford. The FLI office promotes diversity, inclusion, and respect, fosters community engagement, and empowers students to thrive.

One program in the FLI Office is the Stanford FLI Community Mentorship Program, established in 2016, which was created to connect first-generation undergraduate students with graduate students and alumni mentors to build a sense of community and develop opportunities for first-generation and/or low-income students during and past education. In collaboration with the Stanford BEAM (Bridging Education, Ambition, and Meaningful Work) Office, the FLI Office connects generations of mentors and mentees with resources and encourages campus-wide discussions surrounding class and privilege at Stanford.

Social Media and Communications.

As Communications Coordinator, I organized and designed several social media campaigns to promote followers on the Stanford FLI Instagram (@stanford_flioffice) and Twiiter (@StanfordFLI) during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Since the majority of Stanford students at the time were unable to physically be on campus, I wanted to provide them with a similar virtual experience of campus life, as I was fortunately able to work on campus for special circumstances at the time.

2021-22 Mentorship Coordinator.

I designed the full 2021-22 FLI Community Mentorship Program, which consisted of more than 300 mentor and mentee participants total. I personally matched each mentor/mentee pair based off of common social and academic interests in their individual applications, and designed additional mentor pods for Biosciences, Engineering, Business, and Political and Social Sciences majors.

I also organized quarterly pod meetings led by alumni mentors specializing in the pod major, one-on-one meetings between each of the mentor/mentee pairs, and a larger community social event each quarter for the Mentorship Program and open to all of campus.

Graphic design and event planning.

In this role, I created various posters and layouts using Canva, Figma, and Miro Board. I also designed program workshop curriculums for alumni mentors to reference at each quarterly pod meeting.

One curriculum I developed for the "Alumni Spotlight" workshop.
