MPA Mentorship Program

The Minnesota Psychological Association is excited to host a mentorship platform to connect students and professionals at all levels. If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee, please find the respective forms below to register. The Student Division of MPA manages these applications and helps facilitate connecting those who are interested in mentoring with those who have similar interests as mentees. You must be an MPA member to participate in the Mentorship Program.

We provide an individualized match for students based on their interests, identified field/experiences, and the available mentors' expertise and experiences. Due to that, the matching process may be slow and we appreciate your patience!
