The Virginia Public Health Association is thrilled to announce the launch of its Mentorship Program.
Virginia Public Health Association’s Mentorship Program is an opportunity for VPHA members to connect and grow professionally through skill attainment, knowledge building, and networking while enhancing the overall public health workforce in Virginia.
Mentors and mentees will be matched on common interests. Mentor and mentee pairs are expected to connect once a month. Additional webinars and activities focused on networking and professional development will be offered during the program for all members of the cohort to network with each other. The estimated time requirement for both mentors and mentees is 1-2 hours per month.
Applications are now open for mentors and mentees to enroll in our inaugural cohort.
Requirements for mentees: Mentees are required to be pursuing a degree in the field of public health or a related field or have entered the field of public health in the past two years.
