Find a Mentor
The LLAMA mentoring program pairs librarians who are currently in leadership positions with librarians who are interested in becoming leaders. As a mentee you can work one-on-one with an experienced colleague while you explore your leadership potential while building skills and relationships for your career. The program runs from the ALA Annual Convention in June - April 30 of the following year.

The 2018-19 application process is now open.  All interested members are invited to review the following materials and apply:
