The deadline to volunteer to serve as a mentor or request to be matched with a mentor is
June 30, 2017. 

The Meeting Mentor Program is designed to facilitate interaction between new members or graduate students and meeting veterans at the Annual Meeting. Mentors provide valuable knowledge about the SSSP and Annual Meeting activities as well as insight into their own experiences as scholar activists.

  • Have you been involved in SSSP in a meaningful way?
  • Do you have an hour of time to talk to a new member during the Annual Meeting?
  • Being a mentor is fun, doesn't require much time, and allows you to welcome a less seasoned member to the Society.

It is recommended that pairs communicate prior to or early in the meeting, so mentees can get the most out of this program. Although this mentoring program is not designed to be a long-term commitment, the conversations and connections made through the program have lasting effects for both mentors and mentees.

The application to serve as a mentor can be found here. To be matched with a mentor, please apply here.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Joel Best at . The application deadline is June 30, 2017.
