The AAJA Mentor Match program has now launched!
Nearly 130 mentor-mentee matches have been made. Applications came from across the U.S., as mentees applied from 27 states in the U.S. and internationally, and mentors also drew from across the U.S. and globally.
Mentor Matches will have the opportunity to take part in Google Hangout chat sessions throughout the year, access resources through a closed Facebook group platform and take part in programming during the AAJA national convention in Houston August 8-11, 2018.
Due to high demand, the Mentor Match program is no longer accepting applications for mentees. However, please contact your local AAJA chapter to be involved with chapter events and local programming.
Looking for more ways to get involved with Mentor Match? There is still a need for mentors! The application has now reopened. We are looking for mentors in the Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Michigan and Texas areas. Mentors and mentees may be matched in remote locations if needed but priority has been given to those in the same geographic locations. We will look to match remaining applicants by the end of January.
