Mentorship Program

Welcome to the Mentorship Program of the Southern Arizona Chapter of AFP!

Our Mentorship Program is a benefit of chapter membership.  It is designed to support members who are interested in professional development through the participation in supportive one-on-one mentoring relationships.  The program director matches mentees who are interested in learning from senior members, with a fellow AFP member, who possesses broad and deep experience in the profession and who is interested in sharing that experience in a mentoring relationship.

Peer mentorship is monitored and coordinated by AFP board and committee members. Once you enter the program these monitors will keep in contact with you to see how your relationship is progressing, and will be available to you if you have to make changes to your agreement, or need help resolving an issue.

The AFP, Members as Resources Committee, Chair and committee oversee the Mentorship Program.  Once enrolled, the Director of the Program, or a committee member, will maintain contact with you to monitor progress and be available to you if you have any concerns or questions.

Mentors and peers make the following agreements upon entering the program:

Participants agree to meet, in person, with each other at least once a month.  The mentor agrees to contact their mentee and set a time and place to meet each month.

Mentees agree to read the Mentoring Match Guidelines given to them at the beginning of the program and abide by them.
