Mentoring Activities Schedule
Time commitment is critical to the success of a formal mentoring program. Both mentors and mentees are required to attend all mutually agreed upon one-on-one session totaling up to 12 hours. Mentors are required to attend the mandatory mentor training.
In addition, mentees are required to attend 12 hour group activities and 16 hours on a leadership project to graduate from the program. In total, mentee participants will need to set aside 40 hours for this program during this 9-month period. In lieu of these group activities, waiver may be requested for mentees to take workshops at their agencies as a substitute to this requirement due to geographical distance. Some of these group activities will be scheduled during the weekdays but on occasion, during the weekend to accommodate maximum attendance. Participants will sign a mentoring agreement to acknowledge their roles and responsibilities to improve work performance using the CD program. In support of the goals and objectives of FAPAC, they will be agreeing to make a contribution to FAPAC’s program and membership activities.
Conference call will be made available for those who cannot attend onsite.
