For the sixth year, the American Planning Association of Southeast Pennsylvania (APAPA-SE) is launching a mentor program for professionals in the planning field and local city planning graduate students. The program will include students from the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University. This program has helped students learn about the array of planning jobs, day to day work responsibilities, and advice for navigating the job search.
If you are interested in signing up to be a mentor, please fill out this form and email your resume to email@example.com by Sunday, September 22.
Mentors agree to be available 2-3 times throughout the year to meet with students on an informal basis and will have the opportunity to meet with mentees at events sponsored by the APAPASE. You do not have to be a member of APAPASE to be a mentor in the program and the specifics of meetings with your mentee are up to you.
Please contact Tali Cantor or Jeannette Brugger at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
