Mentoring Program

Mentor Match Mission Statement

The IARP mentoring program is designed to assist with skill development for protégés. The program is open to all IARP members. The program is not meant to provide assistance in case-specific issues but rather is meant to enhance a protégé's overall practice.

According to Russell and Nelson (2009), leadership and mentoring are lifelong activities. An essential part of being a leader is to serve as a mentor to fellow professionals. Mentoring is about developing people, with the objective of helping them achieve their potential. True leaders seize the opportunity to develop other people. Leaders see the big picture and understand that the future of the organization (IARP) or profession depends on today’s growth of tomorrow’s leaders.

Professional development is a key service provided by IARP and Mentor Match is an important component of our offerings and is a member only benefit.

Note: If you do not meet the mentoring program requirements, please consider joining the IARP Coaching Program. For more information, click here.
