Mentorship Program

A short video testimonial about the program.

Welcome to the AFP Southern Arizona Mentorship Program!

This FREE benefit of chapter membership supports members who are interested in professional development through supportive one-on-one mentoring relationships. Program Chair(s) match those newer to the industry with a more senior fellow AFP member, to meet monthly on their own schedule, addressing whatever topics interest the mentee.  Once enrolled, Program Chair(s), or a committee member, will maintain contact with you to monitor progress and be available to you if you have any concerns or questions.

  • Attend Mentorship Program meetings and activities (2-3 per year).
  • Complete the Mentorship Program Application.
