Alumni Advisors are RFS candidates from prior cycles that are matched with newly endorsed RFS candidates to help answer your questions and support you as a candidate -- running for office can feel lonely!
Advisors are matched with candidates based on shared perspectives or commonalities between their campaign and yours, and are available for ongoing check-ins (roughly every 3-4 weeks) for the duration of the campaign to provide support and perspective from someone who has also recently been a first-time candidate.
At this time, we cannot guarantee capacity to match every endorsed candidate with an Alumni Advisor. However, if interested please indicate which of the categories below you would be most interested in connecting on with an Alumni Advisor.
We will do our best to find an available advisor that aligns with one or more of the categories you indicate. If a match is available, we will introduce you to your Advisor via email. Select all that apply(Hold Ctrl to select multiple options)
If you requested an alumni advisor above, feel free to share any additional details or context regarding what kind of match you're looking for. We'll do our best to accommodate.
