Thanks for coming to our first general meeting last week! In that meeting, we mostly introduced our organization and talked about the types of volunteering opportunities available.
Our next general meeting of the quarter will be this upcoming Thursday (10/12/2017) in Ackerman 2408, from 4:00 pm to 4:50 pm. This meeting, we will present about specific volunteering opportunities available. Even if you did not come to our first meeting, you are welcome to join us!
In addition, if you did not receive our email about the application for the mentor, mentee, and secretary positions, here are the information for those:
As mentioned in our week 1 meeting, PPA is now recruiting mentors and mentees for our new Mentorship Program! 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.
Here is the mentor application:
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.
Here is the mentee application:
Although PPA would like to accept everyone applying to be a mentee, we may have limited spots if not enough mentors sign up. For both the mentor and mentee application, the deadline is 10/20/2017, 11:59 pm!
In addition, we also mentioned that we are looking for a new secretary for this academic year. The secretary is expected to:
1) Send weekly emails to PPA members, informing them about events such as general meetings
2) Update and manage the PPA Facebook group
3) Take electronic notes during staff meetings
4) Update and manage the emailing list
5) Take pictures of PPA events
Here is the application for the Secretary position:
For this, the deadline is 10/14/2017, 11:59 pm! Keep in mind that this is sooner than the Mentorship Program deadline!
We hope to see you during our second meeting!
