Applications are open for the fall mentoring program!

Before applying, please check out the live webcast of the ALSC Mentoring Forum that took place in December 2016. This webcast includes a live Q&A about how matches work and communicate.



Mentee applicants do not need to be ALSC or ALA members. The only requirement is that mentees have some connection to children’s library service and must either by 18 years old or have permission from a parent/guardian. Mentees may be students, early career professionals, individuals returning to the profession, or those who would like to refine their skills, make connections, and learn more about children’s librarianship as a career. 


Mentor applicants must be ALSC members and should have experience working in the field of children’s librarianship or children’s literature. 


Applications for the Fall 2017 Program are now closed. If you would like to be considered for a future round of the program, please fill out this RSVP form
