The APMP-NCA Mentor-Protégé program is an incredible opportunity for mentors and protégés alike. In this program, mentors are paired based on the protégé’s specific professional development goals and desired career path as well as the mentor’s unique skills and accomplishments to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership.
There are no age limits, experience requirements, or certification requirements to be a mentor or protégé. Anyone interested in working with a mentor for professional development support and guidance may apply to be a protégé. Similarly, anyone who feels that they have something to share or teach may apply to be a mentor. We will make every attempt to pair protégés and mentors with participants that are good matches for them and what they want to learn or have to offer.
Individual pairs meet as their schedules’ permit, whether it’s virtual, over coffee, at APMP events, etc. They work together for 5-10 hours each month and participate in program-wide meetings once a month to share and learn from other pairs. Program-wide meetings are in-person at the beginning of each quarter and via teleconference the remaining months of the quarter. The program-wide meetings for 2018 are tentatively scheduled for every first Thursday of the month at 6-7 PM for teleconferences and 6-8 PM for in-person meetings.
