Emerging Leaders Program

The South Dakota Counseling Association is pleased to announce the development of an Emerging Leaders Program. In an effort to demonstrate a continued commitment to the leadership and professional development of SDCA members, along with the advancement of our state association and the counseling profession as a whole, SDCA is seeking mentors to assist this next generation of leaders. The Emerging Leaders Program will provide participants with cultivating experiences that support leadership skill and competency development, and diverse opportunities to actively participate in SDCA Executive Board meetings, serve on a committee, task force, and/or engage in projects of interest, receive mentorship, build professional networks, and gain exposure to the responsibilities associated with fulfilling elected leadership positions.

Emerging Leader Mentors will be asked to serve as an experienced and trusted adviser, whose goals include building a strong relationship with the mentee, providing guidance, advice and suggestions as needed, and assisting their mentee in developing leadership skills.
