APA-IL Mentoring Program: 2016 Call for Mentors & Protégés


Do you want to get involved as a mentor? Or perhaps you are seeking a mentor?

American Planning Association - Illinois Chapter is now accepting applications for the Chapter Mentoring Program. The program offers a great way to connect APA-IL's young professionals and students with our network of experienced professional planners.

Young Professionals or Students: Take advantage of the APA-IL's talented network of professionals who are interested in seeing you succeed. We’ll match you with a seasoned professional working in your area of interest. To apply for the program, fill out the Protégé Application.

Professionals: The program relies entirely on professional volunteers who are interested in mentoring a local protégé. The Mentoring Program tries to make this relationship as easy as possible by matching you with a protégé with similar interests and willing to meet at times and locations convenient for you. To apply, take five minutes to fill out the Mentor Application.

For more information, visit the mentoring website or contact Mentoring Program chair Christina Bader at christinab@farrside.com.
