For communication sciences and disorders students, navigating school and trying to decide on a career path can be overwhelming. Mentoring through ASHA's Student to Empowered Professional program can help them achieve educational and career goals.
S.T.E.P. offers students professional mentoring from an audiologist or speech-language pathologist who can help provide career guidance.
Students may be working toward long-term or short-term goals, and the program offers sessions to meet both needs. The six-month fall session takes place October through April; the three-month winter session takes place January through April.
Through the program, matched mentoring pairs communicate regularly with each other, and they can access additional advice from other students and mentors through the online S.T.E.P. Community. As participants receive informal feedback and information from others in the program, they expand their network and knowledge.
Registration for S.T.E.P. closes Sept. 15. Program coordinators will match students with mentors. For more information, contact step@asha.org.
