HI Dr. Tinsley

“All great achievements require time.” -David J. Schwartz

Fawn T. Robinson, Ph.D., NCC, ACS, LPC
President, PAMCD (Pennsylvania)
Chair, 2019 AMCD Mentoring Program


The Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD) is now accepting applications for the 2020 Mentoring Program.

In 1992, the AMCD Mentoring Program was developed by Dr. Quincy Moore to provide access and support to graduate students through mentorship. During the programs conception a three-pronged approach was used which included (a) student's exposure to a panel of professionals, (b) a college fair for recruitment purposes, and (c) an opportunity for students to network via a professional reception. Since then, the Mentoring program has continued to evolve and grow with added elements like the Research Symposium and opportunities for students and new professionals to assist with AMCD's Annual Service Day.

In this way, the AMCD's Mentoring Program is designed to have a positive influence on AMCD at the organizational level (i.e., leadership nationally and statewide) and the participant level (i.e., mentor and mentee). The goal of the AMCD Mentoring Program is to make sure that our mentees: are in an appropriate context for self-discovery, gaining a sense of direction and purpose, and developing the professional and leadership skills while being surrounded by AMCD mentors, leadership team, and members to assist with their professional process.

Each year, AMCD Mentoring Program Committee selects 3-5 students/ new professionals to be AMCD mentees. The mentees are matched with a AMCD mentor who will provide mentorship by playing an active role in the mentee's professional development during conferences and throughout their career journey. Also, the mentors will assist in the development and creation of the mentee's Research Poster for the AMCD Mentee Research Symposium at the ACA Conference.

Selected mentees will attend the ACA 2020 Conference in San Diego, CA (April 15-19, 2020) and serve as volunteers for the various AMCD sponsored events. Also, the selected mentees will receive full registration reimbursement for the ACA Conference and receive a AMCD Luncheon ticket. Overall, AMCD mentees will participate in the following events:
