The Emerging Planners Group (EPG) is a resource for early and mid-career members of APA MN. EPG also works closely with the student representative to provide mentoring and networking to students.

APA MN Mentorship Program 2023-2024 Mentor Program
Organized by the Emerging Planners Group

The APA-MN Chapter’s Emerging Planners Group is set to kick off its 6th annual Mentor Program this fall! The first event will be held in late October - likely the week of October 23rd. Full schedule and event details to come.

For participating mentors, this is an exciting opportunity to volunteer your time giving back to the planning community and provide young professional planners with the skills they cannot learn in school. For participating mentees, this is a casual format to meet new professionals and learn industry knowledge in both group and one-on-one settings. Both groups will participate in fun events sponsored by the Emerging Planners Group during the mentor program.

We are asking for participants to apply who are willing to contribute up to 10 hours of their time from Fall 2023 to early Spring 2024 by attending up to three planned events and at least three individual meetings with your mentor/mentee. Please consider this exciting opportunity! Sign up here
