Volunteer to serve as a meeting mentor or request to be matched with a meeting mentor
Deadline: June 30, 2024

The SSSP Meeting Mentor Program is designed to facilitate interaction between new members or graduate students and veterans at the annual meeting. Meeting mentors provide valuable knowledge about the SSSP and annual meeting activities as well as insights 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 meeting 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 meeting mentors and mentees.
