Giving Back: Mentoring Program
Be a Mentor
Become a Coach. If you want to make a personal difference in the future of the profession, and the future of a professional, become a mentor to current AIHF scholarship winners or put your name on a list to be contacted when other mentor requests are received.
Adopt Younger Members. Are you a committee chair or a member of a committee looking to get more student and early career professional involvement? Adopt our younger members and encourage them to become active through the committees. Contact our mentor coordinator for information on how to adopt a student or early career professional into your committee.
Email AIHA's mentor coordinator if you want to be a mentor.
Need a Mentor?
Everybody needs a road map to get on the right track. Find out how a mentor in the industrial hygiene profession can help you climb the ladder of success.

What do You Need?
Build Your Network. Are you a new graduate? A student? Someone who is new to the profession? The SECP mentoring group can partner you with someone that can show you how to build your network.
Career Guidance. Don’t know what you want to be when you grow up? Struggling with whether to go into consulting or academia? Many of us have been in your shoes. A mentor can offer you some perspective and to assist you on your path.
Committee Adoption. Many students and early career professionals are hesitant to join AIHA committees because they are not experts in that field or topic. That is the perfect reason to join a committee. Ask us about how to be adopted by a committee you are interested in and build your expertise as you build valuable connections.
