To get started, just fill out our form requesting a mentor. Provide information about your site, industry, where you are in the process and goals. The VPPPA mentoring committee will take all information into consideration when matching a mentor and mentee company. We work hard to make sure that industries are similar to ensure that the mentor understands the unique challenges being faced at interested sites. A mentoring coordinator will contact interested companies and explain the mentoring process and provide the site with an application form. This form is very important because it contains all the essential information that factors into the matching process: location; number of employees; SIC or NAICS; a description of what activities the site engages in; and whether or not unions are present at the site.
