The Early Career Psychologist Committee is working to revitalize the AzPA Mentorship Program. If you are interested in becoming a part of this program, either as a mentor or a mentee, please review the information below and select the appropriate link to apply. Questions can be directed to Zorash Montano, chair of the Early Career Psychologist Committee.
Mentorship Program Expectations
- Time commitment: We expect the mentor and mentee to commit to the mentorship program for 1 year at minimum (starting when they are matched). The mentorship relationship can be extended by mutual consent.
- Frequency of meetings: The frequency of meeting will be determined by each mentorship dyad. Aim to at least meet 4 times in a year.
- Avoid dual relationships: Mentorship dyads will establish expectations for the mentorship relationship at the start, and Mentorship Coordinators from the ECP Committee are ready to help dyads do so. Mentees should understand that mentors are not supervisors. Mentors should understand mentees are not free labor.
- Communication: Both mentees and mentors are expected to identify discussions topics and structure the relationship.
- Privacy: Conversations between the mentee and the mentor should be maintained private, unless decided otherwise by both parties.
- AzPA Membership: To receive support from AzPA Mentorship Program coordinators and attend AzPA sponsored mentorship events, mentors and mentees must both be continuous AzPA members throughout the mentorship relationship.
