AMA mentorship programThe AMA Houston Mentorship Program begins November 2016 and ends May 2017, with networking and learning opportunities throughout the year. Program events include monthly one-on-one meetings with mentor pairs, professional development events, happy hours and a year-end celebration.

The mission of the AMA Houston Mentorship Program is to connect young professionals interested in marketing with experienced marketing professionals for support, guidance and encouragement as they pursue a marketing career.

AMA Houston connects emerging marketing students with professionals over a seven-month period. During this time, mentees will get a firsthand look into the marketing world through an experienced mentor. We’re looking for mentors and mentees that are passionate about the future of marketing and want to build meaningful partnerships.

Expectations

AMA Houston will host events that the mentor and mentee are encouraged to attend.

Mentors and mentees will be required to meet at least once a month to discuss progress towards goals or opportunities that will be established at the beginning of the program. Our goal is to develop lasting professional relationships, improve AMA networking opportunities and provide invaluable career development for both mentees and mentors.

AMA Houston professionals who volunteer to be a mentor will be matched with a young professional. Mentors commit to invest their time listening, building trust, and establishing a relationship that encourages the mentee to make good decisions early in their career.
