Mentorship Program



The Crossroads Mentorship Program echoes the mission of SMPS: to advocate, educate and connect and the namesake, "Crossroads," expresses the idea of bringing two people together to share experiences and knowledge for personal growth and professional transformation. The program utilizes a formula that allows our participants to not only have a voice in their match, but also access to structured programming, tools and resources to get moving in the right direction, and networking events to keep you talking.

Check out this interview with 2 participants from the 2014 year about what the mentorship program means to them.

The 2016-17 Session of Crossroads has Begun!

 Season 7 of the Crossroads Mentorship Program is underway! Please stay tuned for our upcoming program schedule.

If you are interested in participating in future sessions of the Crossroads Program as a mentor or protege, please contact our Education Committee leaders: 

 Dan Sernicola | Joel Kohler | Kristin Studabaker




When preparing to meet with your mentor or protégé, many have found it helpful to come with questions or notes on what you would like to accomplish or discuss over the course of the year. Depending on preferences, each pair might like to draw on a variety of resource options. As a committee, we would like to provide you with a few we have found successful!
