YALSA's Virtual Mentoring Program

YALSA’s virtual mentoring program is undergoing a refresh with a new plan approved by the association's Board of Directors in January 2017.  

As outlined in the proposal for the re-envisioning ,the updated program will provide YALSA members with both short-term and long-term opportunities for mentor and protege experiences and will connect mentors and proteges on an as needed basis.  

Our goal is to match members who've identified a specific project or issue they need help with to an experienced member who can provide support and coaching as needed and for a specific period of time.  To do this, we will use the re-launched version of ALA Connect.  The launch has been delayed until March 2020, so we hope to have the mentoring program up and running in the late spring.
