The JC offers a unique opportunity for members to be mentors to clinic patients. The Patient Mentoring Program pairs our members with patients from the clinic in a one on one mentorship setting.
Mentoring Commitment:Duration: At least an 8 month committment
Meeting Committment: Attend required monthly meetings and an introductory training session. Attend pre-mentoring meeting with Ruth Williams, Clinic Coordinator, prior to first meeting with mentee.
Group Events: Attend Fall and Spring mentoring group events.
Mentoring: Contribute a minimum of 1 meeting hours with your mentee per month. In addition, mentors are expected to maintain contact through means of telephone, email, or text message.
Communication: Correspond with Mentor & Clinic coordinators on progress & meeting topics after each mentoring session, via email.
If you are interested in becoming a patient mentor, please fill out the form below and we will contact you.
Please note: The JC works with the clinic to match mentees with mentors. We fill mentor positions as they become available so there may be a wait between when you express interest in our program and when you are actually placed with a mentee.
