Mentoring: Make a Co-Conspirator!

Apply to be a Mentor or Mentee in the ALSC Mentoring Program

ALSC announced the opening of spring 2016 applications for the mentoring program. The program, which is open to members and non-members, is intended to help build a new collection of leaders in the field of library service to children. Applications are now open for both mentors and mentees. The application process ends on Friday, September 9, 2016. 

This year, ALSC has made several changes to the application process. After hearing from participants, the following changes have been made:

  • separate applications for mentors and mentees
  • simplified mentor application to make easier to attract quality candidates
  • new opportunities on mentee application to clarify what they can bring to the match

The mentoring program was developed through the hard work of the ALSC Membership and Managing Children’s Services Committees. ALSC cannot guarantee that every applicant will be matched. Matches will be notified of their status by Friday, October 21, 2016.

Thank You Mentors and Mentees!
