Apply to be a mentee or a mentor
New planning professionals (0-5 years experience) and students in graduate planning programs may apply to be mentees. Experienced professionals (5+ years experience) may apply to be mentors.
The Mentorship Program typically takes applications in the fall of each year. Stay tuned to newsletters from the Chapter and Emerging Planners Group or social media for the next application deadline. For more information on the program in the interim, contact the Mentorship Program Coordinators.
Expectations & Commitment
- Attend all three professional development events. Attendance is strongly encouraged in order to better develop the cohort relationship and maximize networking opportunities, particularly for the Kick-off Event. Please indicate any known absences on your application. Inability to attend events does not disqualify you from the Program.
- Meet with your match monthly outside of the sponsored program events. Regular meetings are critical to fostering the match pair relationship and may take many forms for maximum benefit, from a chat over coffee, to job shadowing, to resume review- you get to decide together what type of meet-up will be most valuable to you both.
- Be proactive in developing a relationship with your mentor/mentee. This program is largely what you make of it. The greatest resource you are provided is your match. Make sure to maximize your time together!
