The APBP Mentorship Program
The Mentee's Perspective
by Kristen O'Toole
Looking for a sounding board to discuss your professional aspirations, challenges, and anything in between? The APBP mentorship program provides this and more. I am honored to have been paired with Kate Riordan, Active Transportation Planner for the City of Fort Wayne, and Kevin Belanger, Senior Transportation Planner and Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for the City of Rockville, MD. The program's trio approach allows for varied opinions and topics to discuss each month, such as resume reviews and article discussions. Each video chat also enables us to discuss bright spots at work as well as challenges. I encourage all APBP members, especially those early in their careers, to participate in the program!
