Mentorship Program

The mentorship program will establish and maintain an organizational structure within which experienced NOSSCR members can provide general professional and specific subject matter guidance to junior NOSSCR members.

Participants enter into a voluntary relationship facilitated through NOSSCR. In monthly individual mentor/mentee video/teleconference sessions, the mentor will provide educational information on a specific substantive matter, answer specific subject matter questions, and also will address general career development-related questions from the mentee.

NOSSCR will recognize the program participants on an annual basis. Program directors may set a cap on participation, and program participants must sign a confidentiality/conduct agreement. The NOSSCR board may terminate the mentorship program at any time at its discretion.

The estimated time commitment for participants is approximately 60-120 minutes a month (including review / preparation of subject matter material/questions, the monthly session, and completion of the quarterly check-in / brief report).
