The Biennial Mentoring Program
2011 marks the fifth Biennial Conference that features the Mentoring Program. It has always been very popular, but this year we are offering opportunities for even more personal contact with the 21 Mentors (who range from graduate students to senior Community Psychologists, both practitioners and academics). The Biennial Mentoring Program is targeted to serve students, early career professionals and those new to the field of Community Psychology. It runs throughout the conference and consists of:
· Orientation Breakfast: Friday, 8-9 am at Roosevelt University. Learn how to take full advantage of the biennial conference and of the Mentoring Program, with former (and current) Mentees sharing their best tips.
· Lunchtime small group discussions, Friday (12:30 - 1:30 pm) and Saturday (1 - 2 pm), each hosted by a Mentor on a different topic of interest to your career. Approximately half the groups will meet Friday, half Saturday, so you could attend two different groups. Prior sign up is required so as to keep the groups small (N = 8) and interactive.
· Individual Mentoring (unscheduled time) The 21 Mentors are happy to talk with you whenever you spot them wearing their Mentor ribbon. Honest.
· Speed Mentoring (new, unscheduled time) The 21 Mentors will, when they have time, make themselves available in the Congress Lounge, Roosevelt, in the Mentoring Area to chat with you.
· Find the Mentor Contest (new, unscheduled time) A scavenger hunt for Mentors' signatures. After each conversation with a Mentor, you will ask for his/her autograph to be inscribed in your roster of mentors (containing brief biographies and photos of the 21 Mentors). A unique prize will be awarded to the 3 Mentees who amass the most autographs at the biennial - a personal telephone chat, following the biennial, with one of the most prominent Community Psychologists, from a list of those who have volunteered to participate. (So far, Ana Mari Cauce, Jim Kelly, Julian Rappaport, Stephanie Riger and Andrea Solarz.) This telephone chat will be on the topic of your choosing.
The 21 onsite Mentors: Fabricio Balcazar, Michelle Bloodworth, Todd Bottom, David Chavis, Victoria Chien, Jim Emshoff, Paul Flaspohler, Joe Galano, Rich Jenkins, Gloria Levin, David Lounsbury, Pamela Martin, Robin Miller, Anne Mulvey, Emily Ozer, Michele Schlehofer, Beth Shinn, Darius Tandon, Nellie Tran, Susan Wolfe, Tom Wolff.
I'll be back soon with more details, but this will get the suspense building meanwhile.
Gloria Levin, Coordinator
