Apply for YALSA’s Mentoring Program

Applications are now open at www.ala.org/yalsa/mentoring for YALSA’s two-way mentoring program.YALSA’s new mentoring program will pair an experienced librarian with a new librarian or graduate student in a library science program. YALSA believes that we all have important skills and knowledge that we can share with one another and so this program encourages protégés to share their skills and know-how with their mentor.

YALSA will accept applications from YALSA members in two categories: protégés and mentors. Protégés are defined as those with five years’ experience or less or students in a graduate library school program. Mentors are defined as those with more than six years’ experience.

Questions? Check out the Mentoring Program FAQ or contact Eve Gaus, YALSA Program Officer for continuing education, at egaus@ala.org or 1-800-545-2433, ext. 5293.

Applications are due by June 30.
