FREE Mentor/Mentee Program Q&A 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.

The mentor/mentee training workshops will be open to mentors and mentees in the NELA Mentor/Mentee Program. More information about the workshops will be discussed at the Q&A and reminders will go out during the summer.

Guidelines for the NELA Mentor/Mentee Program:

  • Both mentor and mentee must be NELA members in order to participate. You will be able to join or renew your NELA membership while completing the mentoring form below.
  • Potential mentors and mentees may be asked to participate in a training program.
  • Once matched, the mentor and mentee commit to a one-year term, during which they shall communicate monthly via phone, video conferencing, email, or in person. Both mentor and mentee must be upfront and clear with each other about their availability and desired goals.
  • After one year, mentors and mentees may choose to formally extend the term for another year.
  • A mentor will not be assigned an additional mentee during the term.
  • At the end of each term, both mentors and mentees will be asked to complete a brief evaluation that will serve to document the program’s success and aid in the review of program expectations and procedures.

Registration for the Q&A Session is open now! For more information, please reach out to Ben Hanley, Membership Committee Chair, at [email protected].
