APA MN Mentorship Program 2024-2025 Mentor Program
Organized by the Emerging Planners Group

The APA-MN Chapter’s Emerging Planners Group is set to kick off its 7th annual Mentor Program this fall! The first event will be held on September 11th in Minneapolis, location and time to be determined.

For participating mentors, this is an exciting opportunity to volunteer your time giving back to the planning community and provide emerging 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 events organized 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 September 2024 through early May 2025 by attending up to three planned events and at least six individual meetings with your mentor/mentee. This totals one meeting a month and is a suggestion. Feel free to meet more or less frequently to achieve your goals!

Please consider this exciting opportunity! Sign up here by August 28th.
