The Professional Development Committee is pleased to announce that applications for the 2019 Mentor Program will be released on Wednesday, August 29, 2018. 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.
Certified Child Life Specialists at all levels of clinical practice, as well as those working in formal leadership roles or in academic settings, are welcome to participate. All applicants must be members of ACLP. Mentee applicants should have approximately one year of work experience as a CCLS before applying. Mentors are eligible to receive 1 PDU for mentoring in the ACLP Mentor Program.
The mentor program will run from January through June, 2019. 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, with a focus on leadership development of child life professionals in all areas of practice.
