2017 UXPA DC Mentorship Program


Take part in the UXPA DC Mentorship Program Pilot! The UXPA DC Mentorship Program is our newest initiative that pairs UX professionals who want to harness the power of our rich UX community by learning from one another. We pair mentors and mentees 1:1 based on overlapping interests, goals, and experiences, and foster the relationship over a 3-month period.

The application period is OPEN for the September - December 2017 cycle through Tuesday, September 5. Since we'll only be accepting 4 mentor and mentee pairs, we encourage you to submit your application as early as possible.

Have a question? Please email mentorship@uxpadc.org
