Latino/a/x Initiatives for Service, Training, and Assessment (LISTA) Certificate Program students will have the opportunity to be voluntarily paired with Rutgers Latino/a/x Social Work alumni through the LISTA Links mentoring program. This program will help to strengthen the networks of LISTA students and alumni. It is expected that students will engage in learning-based relationships with alumni that contribute to their professional development, specifically in cultural awareness and responsiveness in their work with Latinx communities. In addition, Latina/o/x alumni will become positively engaged with Rutgers School of Social Work and with LISTA through their participation as mentors.

A primary goal is to provide professional guidance and support for students as they develop their skills and abilities to work with Latina/o/x communities. Mentors will provide insights about career options; offer a glimpse into career realities; suggest workshops, conferences, and professional associations; and offer an opportunity for the student to expand their professional network. Mentees and mentors are matched based on a range of criteria which may include career interests, geographic location, and personal preferences. An information session for mentees will be held via Zoom at the start of the Fall semester to review expectations and to answer any questions. You will receive the zoom link prior to the session.
