MENTOR PROGRAM

MENTOR PROGRAM

AzSCA believes the school counselor plays a pivotal role in a student's academic, social/emotional and career development. In response to our states recent allocation of funds to provide more school counselors, we are establishing a program to offer support to new school counselors or current school counselors moving to a different grade level of service.

Benefits of the AzSCA Mentor Program include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Career shadowing
  • Direct/Indirect resources
  • Networking
  • “Welcome to School Counseling” survivor kit
  • Monthly phone contact-or weekly at first!

If you find yourself in a new school counseling role we invite you to consider connecting with a mentor. In order to find a mentor closest to you please complete the application by clicking the button below.
