Apra PA Mentor Program

APRA PA offers a mentorship program to its current members.  Mentor relationships can happen both in person but also virtually via email, phone calls, or video chat.  Once you fill out a form that you will be interested, you will be matched based on location, experience levels, skills you have, and skills you want to learn.  

A single person can be both a mentor and a mentee!  We all have a lot to offer our fellow prospect researchers and we all can learn from one another. 

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Lauren Woodring, APRA PA’s Resource Director at lauren.woodring@philamuseum.org
