Syracuse University Mentor Mentee Alliance

SUMMA is one of the longest running mentoring program in New York City. Students are paired with a mentor who graduated from Syracuse University who mentors them throughout their years at Leadership and beyond. Students make life-long connections here, that extend into all aspects of life. Mentors and mentees will do events together, community service, practice for interviews, dinners and much more. Students can start with SUMMA as early as freshman year.
