The launching of the new mentorship program. This opportunity is available to all members and student members of AWRA.
The goal of the AWRA-WA mentorship program is to connect young professionals and students in the field of water resources with experienced professionals who share a similar specialty and are interested in building a mentoring relationship. Those interested in being mentored can apply here, and will be required to enter some basic information which will help AWRA connect you with an appropriate mentor. AWRA will do its best to connect you with a mentor within 2 weeks of your application. Applicants will be connected with mentors on a first-come first-served basis, and in the case that an appropriate mentor cannot be found immediately, you will be contacted. The expectation is that once mentors and mentees are connected, they will arrange for mentoring activities as appropriate.
We are also always looking for experienced professionals who are interested in being mentors. Those interested can volunteer by filling out some basic information here. Volunteers’ information will be entered in our database of possible mentors, and mentors will always be contacted to confirm their availability and interest prior to connecting you with a potential mentee.
For any questions about the mentoring program, please contact Tom FitzHugh.
