The SWANA MentorMatch program offers both long-term and short-term opportunities for experienced solid waste professionals willing to share their expertise (Mentors) to connect with colleagues, young professionals, and students (Mentees) looking for career guidance in the solid waste management and recycling industry.
For long-term mentorships (up to six months), follow the steps above to Enroll, Search, and Connect. Mentee enrollment will be available twice a year in February and September for the current session in which 10-20 matches will be made per session. Sessions will run from March to August in the Spring and October to March in the Fall. Mentors can enroll in the program at anytime to be added to the Mentor Directory for mentees to search through during enrollment periods.
