Become a Certified Mentor NAESP’s mentor program has two components:
1. Leadership Immersion InstituteThis 2 day event teaches principals and other administrators how to integrate best practices in mentoring and adult learning with participants’ experiences. Participants receive 15 professional development hours for completing the Leadership Immersion Institute.
2. National Principal MentorCertification ProgramPrincipals who choose certification will follow the institute with a nine-month Mentor-in-Training internship. Interns, under the caring and watchful eye of a trained coach, choose a protégé, engage in effective listening and questioning strategies, and provide guidance and support to new principals. Interns interact with coaches and other trainees through electronic bulletin boards, chats, and threaded discussions, as well as periodic portfolio submissions. Principals who complete both the institute and the internship are awarded the NAESP National Principal Mentor Certification.
