Mentorship Program

Strengthen Your Marketing and Leadership Skills

AMA Minnesota’s Mentorship Program pairs established marketing professionals with future leaders to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge. 

Fueled by AMA’s core value to “Connect, Learn and Grow,” our 12-month program facilitates one-to-one mentoring to create strong leaders in the Minnesota marketing community. 

Our program is strategically designed to be mentee-driven and to create a meaningful relationship for both the mentor and mentee.  

The Mentorship Program application deadline is noon on Fri, March 19 2021.

Program Details

Please plan to attend the Mentorship Group Kick-Off virtually on Wed, March 31 from 5:00-6:30 pm. Attendance is strongly encouraged.
