ASPRS Young Professionals Council Mentoring Program

The ASPRS Young Professional Council (YPC) has pioneered a mentoring program focused on young professionals (post-students through age 35).    After graduating college, individuals may no longer be engaged in regular interaction in a scientific community with structured milestones of achievement, working toward goals.  Additionally, they are faced with career choices and challenges requiring informed decisions.    The mentoring program is designed to connect individuals with seasoned professionals that can offer insights to help add context, guidance and support to their professional development efforts.  Mentors sign up online to offer support in specific areas of specialization, and mentees can reach out to the mentors of their choice to begin the process, with YPC’s support along the way.

Visit our website to learn more about the program and to sign up as a mentor or mentee:
