The new employee mentoring program is designed to support staff entering the profession or joining Quabbin for the first time.  The first year in a new job is a critical period, ensuring a smooth transition for staff can set them up for success in the years to follow. The mentoring program pairs new staff with existing staff in order to ease the transition to the new position. New staff can also attend monthly professional development sessions to learn more about their role as well as the policies and culture of Quabbin.



Any staff new to their position or new to Quabbin are  required to participate in mentoring. Different categories and responsibilities apply based on any previous mentoring experience. 

Meeting Dates
