Founded by Chis Walters 08′ and Aaron Jacobs 01′, the F&M Men’s Soccer Professional Development Program exists to help guide current F&M players and alumni in their career paths.
The program has two tiers. The first is a professional development mentoring program connecting current players with young alumni. The Mentor are be able to provide career advice on building & maintaining resumes, obtaining internships, networking strategies, and other career drivers that match the interests of the current player. The second tier includes parents and alumni who are established in their professions. They are encouraged to be as involved with the development of current players as they wish, but at the very least, be willing to “pick up the phone” when anyone from F&M soccer calls. The established group serves as a support network to provide contacts and place the current players a step closer to career opportunities with a focus on internships and interview opportunities.
