The Alliance for Massage Therapy Education is launching a new mentoring program. This 10-week program will match individuals seeking mentorship with mentors. Accepted participants will attend a webinar to launch the program, meet weekly for 8 weeks as mentor/mentee pairs, and attend a wrap-up webinar. This inaugural program will run from June through August 2020.
The AFMTE invites applications from educators, program directors or administrators in massage and bodywork education who are interested in being mentored (“mentees”) or anyone willing to serve as a mentor. Applicants will be asked to briefly summarize professional goals, share their motivation for applying, and what they hope to achieve (as mentees) or have to offer (as mentors.)
There is no cost to participate in this program. Application is open to anyone, but membership in AFMTE is required for participation. Preference will be given to Certified Educators and individuals who are in the process for applying for the Certified Educators credential.
If interested, please complete the application by Sunday, May 17, 2020, at midnight EDT.
Materials will be reviewed to match mentors with mentees based upon shared interests and goals. Accepted individuals will be notified by June 1, 2020.
More information is available at the AFMTE website.
