Mentorship Program

Thank you for your interest in participating in NEACAC's Mentorship Program!

This initiative is designed to help NEACAC members learn from each other, build professional relationships, gain support, and develop a deeper understanding of the profession. We hope that our pairings will result in mutually-beneficial connections, in which mentors have the opportunity to impart knowledge, expertise, and wisdom and while honing their mentoring and advising skills.
We seek a diverse group of volunteer mentors to serve as resources and role models to counselors looking to grow and advance their careers.  

Details and application links are below. If you have any questions about these forms or the program, please reach out to Sherri Geller, Mentorship Program Subcommittee Chair (Gann Academy, MA).


Want to be a mentor?

Mentors will work with one or more admission or school counseling professionals for typically 1-2 years, but the time may vary depending on the relationship and at your discretion. If you are chosen to be a mentor, we expect you to plan to connect with your mentee(s) periodically throughout the year and participate, when possible, in meetings with other mentors.  While preference will be given to professionals with at least five years of relevant experience, and we are especially seeking senior admissions officers and school counselors at this time, all NEACAC members are welcome to apply to be mentors.

Want to have a mentor?

We will pair you with an experienced admission or school counseling professional, who will serve as a resource at various points throughout the year.  Typical mentoring relationships will last 1-2 years, but the time may vary at your discretion.  All NEACAC members are eligible for this program, regardless of years in the profession.
