Mentorship & Consultation Program
Statement of Purpose
The Sub-Committee on Mentorship & Consultation Program supports AUCCCO’s goals of creating opportunities for AUCCCO members to feel more connected to the Association, more supported in their outreach administrative roles, to advocate for outreach professionals in our field, and to increase diversity within outreach administration. Through the AUCCCO Mentorship & Consultation Program, AUCCCO members are paired up with another member based on their experience and areas of interest or growth throughout the course of an academic year. These pairs work together to reach learning and administrative goals while also having access to increased support and resources from the Mentorship & Consultation Program. These mentorship relationships serve as an opportunity for AUCCCO members to have a more individualized experience and to strengthen and enhance their outreach skills by offering their guidance, support and expertise, as well as gain knowledge and direction from each other.
Through our New Member or First Timers focus, we also work to welcome and connect outreach professionals to the Association, our community, and our resources. Networking and collaboration are important components of this organization, and this sub-committee works to allow members to get an inclusive, specific, and individualized experience at AUCCCO to enhance and empower them as outreach professionals.
AUCCCO Mentorship/Consultation Program
The AUCCCO Mentorship/Consultation Program’s goals include creating opportunities for AUCCCO members to feel more supported in their outreach administrative roles, to advocate for outreach professionals in our field, and to increase diversity within outreach administration. We can feel inspired, grow and learn from each other within our professional roles and hope this program fosters this unique opportunity and experience.
AUCCCO members who participate in the program will get paired up with a member who is in a particular stage of development that can assist with mentoring and consultation. These pairs will work together throughout the course of one academic year to reach learning and administrative goals while also having access to increased support and resources from the Mentorship/Consultation Program.
In matching AUCCCO members, we look at their areas of interest like multicultural, suicide prevention etc., as well as where individuals are in their professional development. We use the stages of development taken from an article below:
The names of these stages were changed, but the concept was taken from this article.
