Enrollment opens Aug. 15 for ASHA’s S.T.E.P. mentoring program, which matches students with professional mentors experienced in the students’ area of interest to help students with their career-related goals.
Through the Student to Empowered Professional program, students and mentors communicate online to address a short- or long-term goal. Mentoring pairs communicate through e-mail, video chats, phone, text or Facebook, and may arrange to meet in person.
Now in its 10th year, S.T.E.P. also provides online resources for students and mentors seeking tools, information and inspiration.
The mentoring matches are based on common professional interests. Program organizers match each student with a mentor who is either working in the setting the student wants to pursue or working with student’s population of interest. Matches also may be based on career goals or other factors. Geographic location is not a factor.
All students enrolled in a communication sciences and disorders program are eligible to apply. Preference is given to students from racial/ethnic backgrounds that have been historically underrepresented in CSD. Students should have a goal that can be achieved within six months.
Enrollment closes Sept. 15. For more information, visit www.asha.org/students/gatheringplace/step.
