How it Works

The mentorship program is designed to introduce students to the world of sports public relations while building a local talent pool of qualified interns and mentees. Each student is assigned a mentor at an LVCVA-sanctioned meet and greet reception. These mentors will communicate with their designated mentees at regular intervals to discuss relevant topics and goals. 

In addition, LVCVA will host a quarterly networking event at which mentors and mentees can meet in a group setting and network with their peers and other mentees. Each mentee will be required to submit regular reports on their progress in the program.

Internships

Beyond introducing students to the world sports public relations, our mentorship program has the additional benefit of fostering a local talent pool capable of progressing from mentees to interns with mentor partners who have internship positions available.
