Mentoring the next generation of counselors and counselor educators is central to our profession and to CSI’s mission. CSI chapters provide a rich context through to offer foster leadership and cultivate professionalism, and mentoring programs can be an exceptional means of accomplishing those goals. However, chapter leaders may feel daunted by the task of implementing a mentoring program. Accordingly, the purpose of this webinar is to discuss mentoring models and strategies chapters can use to effectively implement their own mentoring program.

This webinar will address three primary topics: (1) mentoring program models, (2) best practices for mentoring programs, and (3) the role of systematic evaluation in mentoring programs. We will share practical information and resources from CSI International as well as strategies that we have developed through our own experience working within CSI mentoring programs. Participants should conclude the webinar with simple tips and strategies for implementing and evaluating a chapter mentoring program.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to describe at least three models for chapter mentoring programs;
2. Participants will be able to identify at least four best practices for chapter mentoring programs; and
3. Participants will be able to describe at least two means of evaluating the effectiveness of their chapter mentoring program.
