Applications for the 2019-2020 Mentoring Program have closed. Please fill out this RSVP form to stay updated with program news and future application periods!
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.
