The ACLP Mentor Program
The Leadership Development Committee is pleased to announce that applications for the 2018 Mentor Program will be available later this month. The Mentor Program provides ACLP members with a structured, six-month program designed to support the development and growth of child life specialists at multiple stages of their career. The program welcomes both mentors and mentees, and applicants are matched based on interests and experiences, creating the optimal foundation for joint learning.
Child life specialists at all clinical levels who are members of ACLP are welcome to participate. Mentorship opportunities are also available for academic child life professionals seeking opportunities to develop and enhance skills related to the academic setting. Mentors are eligible to receive 1 PDU for mentoring in the ACLP Mentor Program.
The mentor program will run from January through June, 2018. Mentees will work with their mentors to set goals at the beginning of the program, and mentors and mentees will communicate on a regular basis throughout the six months. All participants will also attend webinars about leadership development topics.
The ACLP Mentor Program application will be available starting August 28, 2017. The deadline to submit an application is October 6.
