Looking for a way to invigorate your career in the new year? Applications are currently being accepted for the fourth round of the APA New York Metro Chapter’s Mentorship Program, which offers a unique professional development opportunity for both mentors and mentees. This round of the Mentorship Program is open to professional planners who have already completed graduate school, as well as second-year graduate students. Participation in the program is free for mentors, and there will be a $25 fee for each mentee, which will be used to support group activities carried out as part of the program. Only those mentee applicants who are selected to participate in the program will be required to pay the $25 non-refundable fee.
The Young Planners Group (YPG) that coordinates the program has developed a brief survey that will help them form mentoring partnerships based on mutual interests and communication preferences.
