Mentoring on a National Scale: the AMTA’s program

The AMTA Mentoring Program was created to help those new to the massage therapy profession more fully realize their potential and provide experienced massage therapists the opportunity to share their wisdom and expand their professional network.

Although the Nevada Chapter has additionally worked to provide members local, short-term mentoring opportunities in the past (and we look forward to setting up more like Mentoring Our Future!) there is a GREAT opportunity for you to mentor (or be coached by) local AND national members in practice.

Who can participate?
Through this new program, experienced massage therapists (Mentors) assist those new to the profession (Mentees) in goal setting, communication and success planning.  This program is free and available only to AMTA members.

How does the program work?
AMTA members interested in becoming Mentors complete a profile at www.amtamassage.org/mentoring.  Those wishing to become Mentees access the Mentoring Program webpage www.amtamassage.org/mentoring and perform a search for Mentors based on location, skills, work setting, and other criteria. Participants in the mentoring relationship will communicate each other’s expectations, create goals and objectives, meet milestones and deliverables, and provide feedback.  The Mentoring Program webpage includes links to resources to assist and guide program participants.

Where can I sign up?
Go to www.amtamassage.org/mentoring and sign up as a Mentor or become a Mentee and learn more about the program. Along with advancing your network or career, enjoy lasting friendships and the fun of sharing with other massage therapists.
