The mentoring relationship is primarily an educational experience. Mentors may offer career guidance, resume writing and interviewing tips, and, above all, the opportunity to start developing a professional network. Ultimately, the mentoring experience is designed to help Academy members gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the correctional health care field.
Things that may seem easy or straightforward to you are often mysterious to people who are new to corrections or who have been recently promoted or given new responsibilities. That’s why it may be easier than you think to make a difference in the course of someone’s career.
This is your opportunity to offer the positive support that you received--or would like to have received--during your career. Your experience and knowledge will be invaluable to the many professionals struggling to find their place.
It’s Easier Than You Think!
Are you an energetic, enthusiastic, experienced professional who believes that correctional health care is an exciting and rewarding career? Are you committed to advancing the quality of care in correctional facilities nationwide? If so, the Academy’s Mentor Committee would love to hear from you.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete an online biographical information form or download the form and return it to the Academy, which will ask about your professional experience and areas of special interest. Your information will be used to facilitate matching participants on both sides of the relationship.
