Mentorship Program

Student Studying Outside

The AGA has compiled resources for students interested in attending a Genetic Counseling Training program. These resources include a contact list of genetic counselors in the area who you can speak with, volunteer and shadowing opportunities in the state of Arizona and more valuable information.   

Female Developers

Mentors help guide us through our career and can be an invaluable source of support and information. Mentoring programs can broaden perspectives, enhance knowledge, promote workforce engagement, and act as a valuable networking tool.

 

The AGA is working towards the development of a statewide mentorship program. If you are a member of the AGA interested in becoming a mentor or a mentee, please contact Lauren Maynard for more information.
