Become a mentor for upcoming 2018 Summer program

    A wonderful member opportunity! Please consider becoming a mentor for our upcoming 2018 Summer Mentor program!

    Applications are now being accepted for participants in a formal mentoring program to be launched by the AWAF Mentoring Committee in 2018.

    Concept:  A mentoring program designed to encourage and nurture the professional development of AWAF scholarship recipients.

    Mentees: Mentee participants will consist of AWAF scholarship recipients current and past.
    Mentors: We also wish to develop a pool of at least 10 experienced AWAF mentors to ensure we can create successful matches in terms of experience, time and availability. It is preferred that the mentor candidates are active members within AWAF.

    What/Where: The program content will consist of four one-on-one meetings with a mentor and mentee - by phone, Skype or in person as logistics permit. The mentoring pair will discuss questions, challenges and learnings related to career planning, work-life balance, self-confidence and personal influence.

    When:Early Summer 2018, as early as May, at times agreed upon by mentoring pairs. (Feedback is that most college students are too busy during the Fall/Winter/Spring school sessions.)

    How:  All applicants are requested to submit biographical and career information that will help assist in the matching process. Mentor pairs will be advised by April 27th so that they can begin to connect and schedule their meetings. The first week of May, mentors will receive training and guidance in how to be an effective mentor details will be sent to mentors selected.

    The mentorship committee has designed the Summer 2018 program with an eye on sustainability, structure and emphasis on professional development.  If you are interested in becoming a mentor please contact Marion Wells at mwells@humanassetmngt.com.
