Mentor-Mentee Program

About the program: The goal of the Great Lakes Association of Child Life Professionals (GLACLP) Mentor-Mentee Program is to match a Certified Child Life Specialist with a child life student in order to develop a professional relationship. This program will allow opportunities for the mentor to share their knowledge and expertise about child life with the mentee.

Requirements: All applicants must be current members of GLACLP as of 2017. We require a nine month commitment (February to November) for this program. During this time, communication must be made with your partner at least twice a month. The program coordinators will send out monthly prompts with child life related questions and topics that will help encourage contact and remind partners to communicate. Communication may include email, phone, FaceTime or Skype, in person meetings, attending GLACLP events together, etc. Commitment will also include participation in a short survey given at the end of the nine months to determine how to improve the Mentor-Mentee Program while assessing its strengths and weaknesses.

Application Deadline: Next Mentor-Mentee Program will begin in 2018
