Mentor Program Application
Magellan Society: Young Professional Mentor Program 2016-2017
About the Mentor Program
The Mentor Program selects Magellan Society members of the World Affairs Council to partner with individuals from its Board and Advisory Board to promote an exchange of wisdom and guidance about professional, personal and international interests. Due to the success of the program, space is limited and applicants will be evaluated accordingly. Once accepted into the program, protégés have the option to be paired with a mentor in a similar or different profession.

Mentors and protégés arrange informal face-to-face meetings a minimum of four times over a period of nine months. An orientation is held in early fall, which brings together all mentor and protégé participants and is a great opportunity for social and professional networking with other young professionals from the community and some of Jacksonville’s finest leaders from both the public and private sectors.
