Mentoring Program

Professional Mentor/Mentee Program

The Scripps PRSSA Professional Mentor Program gives dues-paying members the opportunity to connect with industry professionals. Mentors and mentees are matched based on interests in careers, locations and hobbies. Through the Professional Mentor Program, students are able to gain insights into life after college while building their network and developing new connections.

Chapter Mentor/Mentee Program

Pprsa-culpwrit-award-winner-300x261RSSA’s mentor/ mentee program provides further experience to students at every level. Mentors will have the opportunity to gain leadership experience by teaching and sharing their personal experiences. Mentors should have been involved in PRSSA for at least a year and developed skills through classes, extracurricular activities and internships.

Mentees get access to an advanced student who was once in their shoes. Mentors help their mentee by reviewing their resume, recommending classes, teachers and internships, offering advice and just being a friend.

The PRSSA mentor/ mentee program builds long-lasting relationships among students of all levels.

ByvhVgVCYAASpj4.jpg-large“One of the greatest things that PRSSA did for me was give me a mentor. My mentor really guided me throughout this past year, taught me to go for every opportunity and is always there when I need advice. The mentor/mentee program is so great and I know that my mentor and I will always stay in touch”
-Amanda Stefanik, PRSSA/OU Alumna
