ASCE OC Branch & YMF
Now Accepting Applications for 2019-2020 Mentorship Program!
By Stephen Cruz, PE | Mentorship Program Co-Chair
Applications for the 2019-2020 Mentorship Program are now being accepted! ASCE OC hosts an annual Mentorship Program for the encouragement and development of its members and our future leaders. The program will pair young professionals (protégés) with an experienced civil engineer (mentor) in the local OC Branch. The Vision of the ASCE OC Mentorship Program is to provide invaluable guidance to young professionals to establish and attain their goals while providing a meaningful opportunity to experienced engineers to contribute to the Civil Engineering community.
Mentors and young professionals are paired after a speed interview process based off of discipline, common interests, and location. Throughout the year members in the program will attend three mandatory events and have the option to attend several informal events such as happy hours. The roles and responsibilities for mentors and young professionals will be unique to every pair and the goals set between each pair will serve as a guide for their relationship.
Applications due by Friday, August 30, 2019.
