WTS-DC 2017 Mentoring Program Application Now Open


What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a partnership between a mentor and a mentee designed to promote an interchange of knowledge, skills, experiences and expertise to support personal and professional growth and development. A good mentoring program benefits both the mentor and the mentee.

How the Program Works

The Chapter will use the best practices and lessons learned from our successful past mentoring programs. By submitting your application, you are displaying that you are aligned with the goals of the program. The WTS-DC Chapter will select mentors and mentees to work together, thus building and fostering professional and personal relationships. 


The WTS-DC Chapter Mentoring Committee will review the applications and accept up to 15 mentors and 15 mentees. The evaluation of applications will be based on the clarity of the application and the applicant’s ability to articulate her goals for the program. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Expectations and General Timeline

The program will consist of several formal and informal group meetings throughout the year, no more than one event every six to eight weeks. Mentors and mentees will be responsible for meeting at least once a month on their own during the program – this can be face to face or on the phone. Program participants are expected to participate fully in this initiative and provide feedback to WTS-DC about their experiences.

Join Us!

We are now accepting applications for both mentors and mentees to our 2017 program. If you are interested in participating in this exciting part of our professional development program, please submit an application. We look forward to working with you this coming year!
