Applications to participate in the New England Archivists Mentoring Program will be accepted through Wednesday, February 15, 2017. This year-long program will begin in March 2017. Applications and more information are available on the NEA website.
The program is structured in several Mentoring Circles, small groups that consist of four to six mentees and two mentors. Diverging from the traditional one-on-one mentoring model, the NEA Mentoring Program aims to:
-- Encourage the exchange of experiences, challenges, and opportunities to facilitate goal-setting for career and personal development
-- Build competence and character to reach those goals
-- Foster self-confidence, communication skills, and collective growth
Mentors and mentees are matched to a circle depending on their interests, goals, and availability. The application process includes an initial survey to determine everyone’s interests and support the initial matching. All participants should be current NEA members able to commit to a full cycle of the program (seven to nine months).
