Mentorship Project

Members of the DIII Young Professionals Committee feel strongly about the idea of mentorship within the profession of athletic training.  It is our desire that any newly certified athletic trainer or young professional has access to a human resource to help assist and guide them in the early years of their career.  Thank you to those in the state of South Carolina who willingly stepped up to the plate to serve in this endeavor.  

Students and Young Professionals: 
Feel free to reach out to our mentors.  They are here to be a resource for you and will do their best to offer guidance and provide answers to questions you may have about preparing for or adjusting to your new role as an athletic trainer.  They are waiting for your email! 

For any questions about our Mentoring Program, please contact the SC representative to the DIII Young Professionals Committee, Rachel Sharpe, at sharpeRL@mailbox.sc.edu.
