Mentors & Mentees – share you accomplishments during Rise Up 2017 at our Closing Session on Saturday, May 13.
How It Works
Each year, AIGA Atlanta accepts a select group of Mentor-Mentee pairs to participate in an exclusive mentorship program that promotes community, design education, and personal and professional development. Mentor-Mentee pairs are introduced at a kick-off session where they establish goals and expectations to tailor their experience. They are encouraged to communicate at least monthly; most do so more frequently. Pairs meet again at a closing session where they are invited to share jointly produced projects and “aha” moments.
2017 Guidelines and Responsibilities
– Mentors and mentees agree to a commitment from January – May 2017. The minimum requirements are to meet one-on-one once a month (can meet via Skype), though more frequent interactions are encouraged.
– Life happens, and sometimes obligations need to be rearranged. Please give your partner the respect of at least 24-hours cancellation notice prior to your scheduled meeting.
– Focus is on enhancing the skills necessary to be a successful professional designer. This is not considered an internship, nor a guarantee of employment. The program is entirely experiential and customized by participant according to their areas of need.
– If using social media to detail this experience, please use hashtag #AIGARiseup
This event is for current Rise Up 2017 Mentorship program participants only. If you are interested in participating in the 2018 Mentorship Program, please contact Alina Shafii at mentorship@aiga-atlorg for more information.
