Hope everyone has enjoyed their long weekend so far. We would like you to know that the mentorship program is re-opened for those who are still interested. To clarify, if you already have a mentor/mentee, you DO NOT need to fill out the application again. We are looking especially for new mentors. If you know anyone that is interested in a mentorship/volunteer position, we would really appreciate it if you could mention this program to them. Deadline is 1/21/2018, 11:59 PM for both applications!!!
In this program, we will pair up people based on their needs and experiences. For example, if a mentee is looking for a research position, we will do our best to pair him/her with a mentor with some research experience.
You need to be in your 2nd year or higher to be a mentor. Keep in mind that you are expected to keep contact with your mentee throughout the year. In addition, there occasionally will be mandatory meet-ups where you have to help with a specific subject, such as class planning.
Although PPA would like to accept everyone applying to be a mentee, we may have limited spots if not enough mentors sign up.
