Each year our chapter offers this award winning program to current San Diego chapter members. We typically launch in late spring or early summer. Through a creative "speed dating" process, we pair volunteer mentors with interested proteges over a six month semi-structure program. BOTH the mentor and protege participants share they learn new things and build their professional network.
A mentor can assist in many ways including:
Offer guidance and resources on their ares of expertise
Offer connections to colleagues with additional expertise
Provide support and encouragement in pursing goals
Help establish professional networking
Overall, we find that the more focused the protege is on their goals, the more effective the process is for both participants.
