Mentorship Program – August Activity

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.

If you are interested in becoming an environmental education mentor with WAEE or feel you might benefit from being a mentee please contact the WAEE office at

And if you are already a part of this program be sure to connect with your mentor/mentee and participate in the August activity.

August Activity : Discuss career options. Explore environmental education jobs and internships on and discuss what jobs are most appealing to the mentee. Mentors, discuss how mentees can attain their ideal job.
