I have been asked to join the board of AIGA Philadelphia heading the newly formed Mentoring Committee. In late 2009, I approached the board with the idea of starting a mentoring program within the Philadelphia chapter. In the Fall of 2010, we launched AIGA Philly's program -- pairing seasoned designers with seniors in college or young designers within their first five years of practice. That first semester paired 8 mentors with mentees. In three years, the program had grown to 28 pairs -- with a waiting list of four. And the program is now open and accepting applicants on aigaphilly.org for its fourth year of service.
