Despite the growing diversity of its population, the ethnic composition of state and local educational leadership administration systems has remain virtually unchanged over the last few decades. For Latino and Latina leaders, access to information, visibility, and prospects to develop and grow as professionals are examples of opportunity dimensions that are not sufficiently available to them even to this day. For this reason, TALAS established the Latino and Latina mentoring program in Texas.
- Participation is voluntary
- Minimum two-year commitment
- Mentors and protégés are expected to make a minimum of two contacts per month. Contacts may be in person and/or by telephone, Skype, Jigsaw, or email.
- Mentors must commit to a minimum of one meeting with the entire cohort during a one-year period. All meetings will coincide with TASA’s scheduled conferences (TASA/TASB Convention, TASA Midwinter Conference, and UT/TASA Summer Conference on Education).
Note: The mentoring program is open to TALAS members only. If you would like to join, please visit Join TALAS on our website.
