WASBO Member-to-Member Mentorship Program
The WASBO Mentorship Program was designed by members to bridge the gap between a mentee’s training and his or her real, on-the-job experience. Unlike long-term mentorship, the commitment for the program typically lasts for approximately one year and is determined by the mentee’s specific needs.
The framework of the program each mentor/mentee relationship will evolve differently. Each relationship is unique based on needs, personality, learning styles, expectations, and experiences. Mentorship can provide one or all the following: regular opportunities for individuals to reflect together about their hands-on work; an opportunity for skill development measured in competencies gained; a significant, long-term effect on the life or work style of another person.
The Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials (WASBO) has expanded the availability of the mentorship program to all District Professional Members. Current members who are changing positions within the state, assuming positions in Wisconsin after practicing in other state(s) or wishing to become more knowledgeable in a specific program may also want to participate in the mentorship program on a volunteer basis.
