Becoming a Mentor
Members interested in providing mentorship for others may self-identify on their OSOT Member Profile
which be accessed at the top right corner of the page.
This can also be done at the time of the annual membership renewal. By identifying an interest/willingness, the potential mentor’s name and business contact information will be made available to members seeking mentors who meet the criteria they are seeking. You can change your commitment at any time by accessing your member profile.
Thank you in advance for your time and willingness to share your knowledge and expertise to our profession’s new graduates, the OTs of tomorrow, colleagues from another part of the globe, or an OT looking for a career change by way of practice in a new area, or sector.
What to know about the Process:
- You may be contacted by a prospective mentee who is an OSOT member and who has selected your name from OSOT’s Find-a-Mentor Online Tool accessed through a member protected page on the OSOT website. Your name would have surfaced to them if you met their search criteria – i.e. geographical location, or practice area, or current role, or years of experience etc.
- When you are contacted by a prospective mentee, please be transparent from the onset, as to what type and/or whether you are able to commit to any degree of a mentoring partnership at this time.
- View the OSOT Mentorship Program Resources to support you on your journey as a mentor!
- How can we improve? We seek feedback on the experience of both Mentors and Mentees. Periodically, you may receive an email survey link from OSOT to solicit your feedback if you have been engaged as a Mentor.
- OSOT is pleased to recognize your special contribution to a colleague’s professional growth. Once you’ve completed your mentorship commitment please contact the OSOT Office to request your certificate of appreciation for your professional portfolio!
