What can I expect if I request a Mentor?

Participation as an individual receiveing mentorship as part of "The E-Mentorship Vision Network" will involve allocating approximately 1-2 hours of your time per week for a nine month period in which you will develop a professional relationship with your mentor by communicating via, the N.H. Professional Development E-Mentorship web site, e-mail, telephone, or in person.

You will be matched with an mentor who is seeking based on said mentors area of expertise based on your specific self identified professional develpment and learning goals. One of the program managers will communicate with all participants on a regular basis to support the pilot program's mission to support the individuals they are mentoring in the program and for their own professional development support.

We will hold an introductory "kick-off" event to begin the program and aim to have two events for participants throughout the run of the program that will allow time for professional development, feedback, networking, socialization, and of course, fun.

The goal of the E-Mentorship Vision Network is to have both mentors and those being mentored to walk away from the experience with an increased knowledge of educating individuals with visual impairments, professional development opportunity, and an increased sense of community, collaboration, and communication amongst educators of the visually impaired so that students with visual impairments receive a high quality education from informed, confident, collaborative, and connected professionals.
