Should I be an AAPA Mentor?
Are you passionate about helping young people to become future leaders? Are you looking to positively impact someone’s life by sharing your experiences and knowledge? Do you want to enhance your own personal growth?
Who are AAPA Mentors?
AAPA Mentors are successful managers, directors, executives, and diverse role models who help shape young professionals’ careers and provide critical learning and development opportunities.
Membership of AAPA Mentoring is voluntary. Mentors are responsible to mentor, coach and support Mentees during the AAPA Mentoring Program. Mentors should possess qualifications that will enable them to make a significant contribution to the Mentoring Program and to the development of Mentees. Mentors will actively participate and support the activities of AAPA Mentoring Program. The Mentoring Committee will evaluate the each candidate’s qualifications in the following areas:
Mentoring Meeting Attendance
Develop Mentoring Program Curriculum
Conduct Mentoring Workshops and Presentations
Networking and Recruiting
Nomination and Election Process
- Applications are accepted year-round. However, mentor-mentee matches usually occur between February and March each year. If you are accepted as a Mentor after this timeline, it is not guaranteed that you will have a Mentee for that program year. However, we will do our best to match you with future incoming mentees.
- There is no term limit on being a Mentor. Renewal occurs at the end of every year.
- Complete the Volunteer Mentor Application. Please fill out the application completely.
- Please be prepared to send your resume, biography, and headshot to the Mentor Committee after completion of your informal interview.
