Call for Mentors

Have you been thinking about being a mentor? The good news is that you can do so with a participant from the Leadership Institute. You would be working with a motivated, engaged, emerging leader, to pass on the knowledge you have learned in your career. Sign up now!


The Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute will begin its seventh year in October 2010. One of the nationally recognized components of the Institute is its formal, organized mentoring program. All Institute participants are required to choose a mentor whose primary responsibility over the 10 month duration of the program is to assist the mentee in setting leadership goals and mastering the competencies necessary to achieve them.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please submit a Letter of Interest that includes the following:

1) Contact information – name, title, organization, telephone number, e-mail address

2) Brief outline of your area of expertise based on the Institute’s competencies

3) Reason(s) you would like to mentor a Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute participant

We recommend that your letter be no longer than two pages. The letter will be available for program participants to review. It should provide basic information to help them decide whether they would like to explore the opportunity of forming a mentoring relationship with you based on their professional development needs.

Please submit your letter of interest to Jill Canono at by June 30.

For additional information, please feel free to contact Dr. Canono by e-mail or telephone at 850.245.6648.
