Native-to-Native Mentorship Program in Psychology
Seeking Mentors & Mentees for the 2023-2024 Mentorship Program
Welcome! The Society of Indian Psychologists (SIP) Native-to-Native Mentorship Program is designed to match Native individuals (students and junior faculty) who are aspiring for careers in any area of psychology (academic, research, industry, public service, clinical, school, or consulting) with Native mentors. We provide training, CEU webinars, and a Native support community to enhance career and personal development.
The program requires a one-year commitment with an option to re-enroll for additional years. Matched participants agree to:
a) Participate in a minimum of four (4) virtual interactions with their mentor or mentee per academic year (2 per semester)
b) Attend the webinar orientation session and the five-part community-building webinar series: On Becoming and Connecting as a Native Psychologist.
c) Attend the annual SIP Retreat/Convention in Logan, Utah, every June.
All Native-to-Native Mentorship Program participants must be Full-Time Practitioners, Retired, or Student Members of the Society of Indian Psychologists (SIP).
Dues ($50, $35, or $10) are assessed annually and must be PAID current for the mentorship year.
