Being a part of the Program will include activities for both mentors and mentees such as:

  • Listening Actively

  • Identifying Goals

  • Sharing Experiences

  • Building Trust

  • Encouraging Action

  • Providing Inspiration and Corrective Feedback

  • Opening Doors

  • Guiding with Instruction and Development Capabilities

All participants in the program will enjoy benefits and learn new skills or strategies to help us move forward and enhance our WTS members' career goals and growth! Please fill out an application by December 17, 2017 to participate in our 9-month program. Participants will receive an email with information about the Program schedule, including our kickoff event which will be held in February. (see eligibility requirements below)

Previous mentoring experience is not necessary!
