Mentorship Program Mission/Vision Statement
It is The Counseling Speaks Mentorship Program’s mission to help individuals live their best life and reach their maximal potential in their professional, educational, and personal life. The Counseling Speaks Mentorship Program is for anyone at any age who feels that they could benefit from a structured program that focuses on setting and achieving personal goals as well as educating themselves as to how they can live their best life. Topics included in the mentorship program that the mentor and mentee will work to develop and strengthen are: goal-setting/career planning, stress management, work-life balance, problem solving/decision making, positive psychology and attitude, and more depending on individualized needs and goals. The mentorship program is typically organized into bimonthly meetings over the course of 6 months for a total of 12 sessions. However, the time frame and curriculum may be slightly altered depending on the mentor/mentee’s circumstances and schedules.
Counseling Speaks’ Mentorship Program prohibits discrimination against and harassment of any applicant, mentor or mentee because of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, veteran status or any other characteristic protected under federal or state law. Any violations of the non-discrimination policy should be brought to immediate attention to the supervisors of the Mentorship Program.
