NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS

AFP Mentoring Program

One of the benefits of membership in the AFP Greater Cleveland Chapter is our mentoring program. Members have the opportunity to sign up for a mentor for a one year relationship. Mentoring sessions begin March 1st and September 1st each year. Mentors and mentees determine how often they would like to meet (a minimum of four meetings during the relationship is required) and topics for discussion. The program has been a huge success with both mentors and mentees pleased with their new relationships.

The program is not intended to replace current educational opportunities or to serve as a substitute for professional consulting services. However, it is an opportunity to develop a relationship with a more experienced professional in our chapter, learn from that person, ask questions, and get some guidance on your projects and career.

Applications are due by July 31, 2019.

Goals and Objectives:

  1. Strengthen the skills of the mentee
  2. Support professional career development for all
  3. Help mentees learn the ropes faster to avoid setbacks/mistakes that come with inexperience
  4. Build a foundation of professional practice and ethical standards
  5. Build confidence and knowledge
  6. Foster collaboration between seasoned professionals and newcomers or others who desire a mentor who is at a more senior level.
