*NEW* NELA Mentor/Mentee Training Workshops!

Did you know that one of the rewards of having an active NELA membership is being able to participate in NELA's Mentor/Mentee Program? Joining NELA's list of available mentors is a great way to volunteer at your own pace. NELA will always respect a mentor's decision if they decide they are unable to accept a mentee request.

We are also excited to be launching the *NEW* NELA Mentor/Mentee Training Workshops in September. These free, virtual workshops are a requirement to participate in the mentor/mentee program. We will be holding two mentee training sessions and two mentor training sessions. The workshop dates and times are below. You only need to attend ONE session.

Register Today

As a NELA member, did you know that you can be mentored? You can also be a mentor! The NELA Mentor/Mentee Program is designed to provide mentoring opportunities to librarians and paraprofessionals of diverse needs from various library fields and geographic locations. We make every effort to match participants with mentors who share stated interests.

We’re holding a Q&A Session about the Mentor/Mentee Program on Thursday, May 11th, 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST. This session will be led by the Membership Committee. This is a FREE Q&A opportunity for NELA members who are interested in either being a mentee or becoming a mentor to learn more about the program. The Q&A will feature Mentor RI Consultant, Chris Margadonna, who will lead mentor/mentee training workshops for program participants in September. You’ll have the opportunity to ask Chris questions about mentoring and the training workshops.
