Dallas County Community College District is launching a new Mentor Network Program for full-time Professional Support Staff and Administrators. Are you interested in becoming a mentor or would you like to be mentored?
As a mentor, you will enhance your coaching and listening skills while supporting the development of others.
As a mentee, you will build professional networks, gain exposure throughout the Network and hopefully achieve some of your professional and personal goals.
- The overarching goal of employee mentoring within the DCCCD is to facilitate a collaborative, cross-functional learning-centered partnership where mentors and mentees are paired for a mutual discovery process with the intent to achieve specific goals.
- A DCCCD mentor serves as a guide or learning facilitator in a mentee-driven relationship. The mentor shares accountability and responsibility for achieving the mentee’s learning goals to foster growth and development.
- A DCCCD mentee plays the role of an active learner to develop skills, abilities, knowledge, or thinking; and shares the responsibility and accountability for the achievement of goals.
- A mentor facilitator act as a support during all phases of a mentor and mentee relationship. Facilitators are trained in strategies and tools mentors and mentees will need to be successful in the critical first 90 days of the relationship throughout closure. We currently have 18 trained mentor facilitators representing each campus/location throughout the DCCCD.
