What to expect

They agree to teach, We agree to learn and do!
Please be prepared to give a short introduction at Orientation. This enables the entire class to become familiar with your goals for the program. Talk about what they hope to learn, and share what skills they want to gain or improve on during this program. Mentors will introduce themselves and discuss what skills and expertise they have to offer as a Mentor throughout the program.  You will be provided with Mentors preferred method of contact in case you want to reach out to them about what they are offering to teach.

  Meeting with your Mentors:

  • You will receive your assigned Mentors early during the program. If you decide that this mentorship needs to be extended, you are welcome to negotiate this beyond the program.  It is up to you and your Mentor to meet as many times as you feel necessary to reach the agreed upon goal.
  • It is the Apprentice’s responsibility to make contact with their Mentor(s) to set up the meetings. If the Apprentice feels the Mentor is not making an effort to schedule, the Apprentice should contact one of the Apprentice Liaisons so they can reach out to that Mentor.
  • Apprentices should meet with each Mentor at least once in a face-to-face meeting when teaching hands-on skills.  Mentoring can also take place via phone, Skype, FaceTime, etc.
  • Provide feedback to the Apprentice Liaison regarding the progress of each mentorship, success of the mentorship, and the program as a whole.
