How it works
To become a Mentor or Mentee in the ERAPPA Mentorship Program:
- Make a 1-year commitment to be a mentor or mentee.
- Consider presenting at an ERAPPA Annual Conference or at your local Chapter level to share lessons learned.
- Be willing to share your mentorship experience to the ERAPPA Board so we may learn how to improve the program.
- Mentors and Mentees will be recognized at the ERAPPA Annual Meeting.
- This is a program that you can tailor to meet your needs. We will make the best effort to provide a match based on your completed application form.
- The mentee and mentor should have some ideas as to how they would like to see this program work and what they would like to learn and experience.
- The ERAPPA Board will provide an email with background information relating to the match. After reviewing the potential mentor or mentee information and expressing some potential interest, we will have the mentor make contact.
- The two of you will drive this process. If either party wishes to dissolve the relationship at any time, please communicate to your mentor/mentee and to the ERAPPA Board.
Go to Mentorship Resources or "Mentoring: What is it and are you Ready?" for more information about the roles and benefits of becoming a mentee.
