The Mentorship Program
accomplishes WAEE’s mission of networking by linking experienced environmental educators to those who are new in the field. There are no set criteria for being a mentor or mentee. Mentors should be available to answer questions, serve as a reference, or even provide practicum experience for their mentee while mentees can ask questions, look for potential employment, and even use their mentor as a reference. Mentorship program participants meet at a WAEE event, share contact information, determine a goal for the partnership, and share a conference meal. Mentorship activities are suggested in the WAEE monthly newsletter.
May’s Mentorship Activity:
Planning on taking a vacation this summer? Think about sending your mentor/mentee a postcard from your destination! It’s a great way to stay in touch and keep updated on your experiences.
If you are a member that is not a part of the mentorship program but would like to be or if you would just like more information about the program please contact Karla Lockman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
