2016-2017 Mentoring Program

Please join us this year for MPPAW’s Mentoring Program! The program matches students, early career professionals, and transitioning professionals with experienced MPPAW members working as internal or external practitioners. As in previous years, this year we have both one-on-one and group mentoring options. Participants are asked to commit to meeting once a month in person during the MPPAW “season,” partnering to set goals, and working together to achieve them. Mentors and mentees are also asked to participate in an orientation session and are invited to attend a social event with other mentors and mentees mid-way through the year.

Past mentees have reported learning a broad variety of “lessons” from their MPPAW mentors, including:

  • Career advice
  • Networking tips
  • How to interact professionally
  • What skills to polish
  • What to look for in an internship/job

For experienced MPPAW members, mentoring offers the opportunity to:

  • Apply interpersonal skills
  • Gain coaching and leadership experience
  • Help someone newer to the field with their career goals
  • Learn about new advancements in the field
  • Build more connections

Please consider serving or participating in the MPPAW community in this unique and valuable way. An application can be completed online in less than 10 minutes. To apply for this year’s program, complete an application by October 7th!
