ProConnect Mentee Application

The IPRA vision for the ProConnect Mentorship Program is to create an innovative partnership between three people based on their commitment to the mentoring process, common goals/expectations, mutual trust, and respect. Mentoring is a “give and receive” process to provide a rich and rewarding group experience for early career, mid-level career, and advanced/retired professionals. We ask you to share all your information so the ProConnect Board of Regents can match you (as a MENTEE) in a beneficial mentoring “triad” relationship.
