Mentorship Program

The Mentorship Program is accepting applications at this time. 

AMENA-Psy’s Student Committee's mission is to advocate for the needs of Arab/Middle Eastern/North African (MENA) students in Psychology, including the need for mentorship within the MENA Psychology community. The program will offer two forms of mentorship. The aim of the program is to facilitate a year-long mentoring experience or a brief 1-3 meeting consultation track. Graduate students can serve as both a mentee and a mentor if they wish. If you are interested in both roles, fill out both interest forms. Below is a list of relevant forms for the program: 

  1. Mentorship Program Flyer
  2. Program Details and Eligibility Requirements
  3. Signing-Up: Mentee Registration Form
  4. Signing-Up: Mentor Registration Form

What if I miss the enrollment period?

The enrollment ended on October 6th for the 2023-2024 academic year. If you are interested in participating as a mentor or mentee and missed the enrollment period, please complete the mentor or mentee forms above and you will be eligible to enroll in the brief consultation track (1 - 3 meetings) on a rolling basis depending on finding a suitable match. 

You must be an AMENA-Psy member to be eligible for the program. To renew your membership, please fill out your application here. If you have any questions regarding the mentorship program or eligibility, please feel free to email amenapsystudents[at]gmail.com.

AMENA-Psy Student Member Listserv

Too often MENA students feel isolated and unsupported. We want to change that and help students find the resources and support they need. 

The AMENA-Psy Student Committee created this listserv (students@amenapsy.org) to provide graduate and undergraduate student members of AMENA-Psy with an electronic platform for networking and easy access to fellow students for the purpose of sharing information, resources, and opportunities that are relevant to the profession and training in psychology. 

Upon joining the organization, student members are added to the general AMENA-Psy listserv (discussion@amenapsy.org), which is open to all members of AMENA-Psy. This listserv is only open to undergraduate or graduate students who hold active membership in AMENA-Psy.

This benefit is optional. 

To be added to the student listserv please email amenapsystudents[at]gmail.com. Simply type “Add to student listserv” in the subject line.

To be removed, type "Remove from student listserv" in the subject line. 

Please take a moment and read the listserv rules

 

Doctoral Internship Working Group

Our Internship Working Group is a wonderful experience and provides students a great source of support through the process of applying to internships. The group meets once a week to work on materials, ask questions, and receive feedback on materials. Additionally, current and recent interns meet with the working group sporadically throughout the fall semester to discuss their insight from the process. Members of the group also participate in mock interviews with AMENA-Psy members, which has been identified as incredibly helpful. 

To be eligible to join the group, students must have active membership with AMENA-Psy and applying to doctoral internship that fall semester. Questions? Email amenapsystudents[at]gmail.com. Type “Internship working group inquiry” in the subject line.

Student Member Communi-Tea Time

Throughout the year, we like to hold space for students to connect, share, and meet new people. In an effort to support one another and foster community, we invite student members to our informal Communi-Tea Time. Announcements and registration links are sent through the listserv. Be on the lookout for our next one! We hope to see you there :)
