Getting started for all three mentorship programs

  1. All Mentees must submit an application using the following link:  Program is currently full.  We are not accepting mentee applications at this time. 
  2. All Mentors must submit a volunteer application here: https://pmiphx.org/chaptervolunteer
  3. All applications go through a selection and pairing process. When approved, we will invite you to create a Mentee profile here.
  4. For our "Academic Mentorship Program," all Mentors and Mentees must agree to attend two (2) virtual or in-person meetings: formal kick-off and closing sessions. The kick-off sets the expectations for each week; the latter allows the chapter to gain feedback to make the program better. We may meet in person for one or both of these meetings; this will be announced at a later time.
  5. Mentors must be PMI Phoenix chapter members, in good standing with PMI, and hold a professional certification with PMI.

All mentorship programs are subject to volunteer availability and/or may be limited or canceled at any time.
