Each year our chapter offers this award winning program to current San Diego chapter members, and we're excited to celebrate our program's 21st Anniversary this year!
This year, we will be launching the program online. We will have the same creative "speed dating" process, where we pair volunteer mentors with interested protégés over a six month semi-structure program, all taking place online. The program provides opportunities for all ATD members, from rookies to veterans, to learn, develop skills, and network in a supportive environment. BOTH the mentor and protege participants share they learn new things and build their professional network.
Overall, we find that the more focused the protege is on their goals, the more effective the process is for both participants.
While the energy and enthusiasm of the protégés drive the program, it is the willingness of the mentors to share expertise and encourage individual development that makes this program so outstanding.
The program usually launches in May/June and will announce when accepting new applications. For more information on the 2020 Program, download the 2020 Mentor-Protege Flyer! To apply, complete the 2020 Mentor Application or the 2020 Protege Application.
