Enroll as a Mentee

The challenges of the global economic and employment environment call for ongoing assessment of skills, career goals, and directions. Successful art therapists require extensive knowledge and diverse skills to survive and thrive in their careers. The AATA Mentor Match Program allows its Student and New Professional members to tap into the talents, experience and wisdom of our Credentialed Professional, Professional, and Retired Professional members.

Follow these easy steps to enroll as a mentee:

STEP 1: COMPLETE YOUR PROFILE

Complete your community profile. Make sure your contact information is up to date, add a recent professional profile picture, expand on your bio and import your education and job history information from LinkedIn. Having a complete and accurate profile is crucial to the success of selection and matching. Profile complete? Return back to this page and move on to step 2.
