Those Receiving the Help Drive Mentoring Program
Editor's Note: Following is the the first of a series of APEGGA articles on mentoring, in light of a pilot program begun in Calgary.
The mentee, or the protégé as the recipient of mentoring
is sometimes called, is often the younger person of lesser skill or experience
in a mentoring pair. The mentee is also the reason for and the focus of
our mentoring program. Mentoring is generally agreed to be a process that
facilitates the personal, career and professional development of the mentee.

If you possess most of these skills and are prepared to do what is required you can be more assured that mentoring will have a positive influence on your career and life. APEGGA is building a mentoring support system that encompasses these principals. In the next addition of the PEGG we'll provide you with a check list of activities you can complete as you work with your mentor. Subsequent issues will provide some pointers for the mentors.
The APEGGA Mentoring Program, or AMP, is being developed in Calgary. If there is corporate support, it will be continued and in about 12 months, it will be available throughout Alberta. Phone Len Shrimpton, P.Eng. in the APEGGA office in Edmonton at 1-800-661-7020 or (780) 426-3990 for information about your company's participation in the program.
APEGGA has hired a consultant to help in the development of the mentoring
program. Dr. Judith Lentin is available to make presentations to your
company about the APEGGA Mentoring Program. She is available at (403)
