New England PTTC Mentorship Program now accepting applications for mentees for the 2022 year!
2022 New England PTTC Mentorship Program
Application Deadline: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 4:00pm ET.
The New England PTTC is hosting its second year of the prevention mentoring program, starting in January 2022. This nine-month mentoring program will provide newer prevention professionals with the opportunity to receive guidance on their professional development, driven by the mentees’ career and professional goals, from an experienced Substance Use/Misuse Prevention Specialist. Over the course of the program, mentees will be provided with trainings, tools, and resources to strengthen and foster their mentoring process.
The ultimate goal of the program is to increase prevention workforce retention and the quality of a prevention workforce that is educated, qualified, culturally competent, diverse, and growing. Each mentee will gain the necessary knowledge and skills to perform the associated tasks within each of the IC&RC Prevention Performance Domains. For those mentees not yet certified, at the end of the program year each mentee should feel confident applying for the IC&RC Prevention Specialist Credential and sitting for the IC&RC Certified Prevention Specialist examination.
