NAPA Mentor Program

NAPA’s Mentor Program provides information on anthropology careers, and tries to match students, new professionals, and mid-level and senior career changers with professional anthropologists for an ongoing professional relationship.

Instant Mentoring

NAPA sponsors instant mentoring annually at AAA meetings. If you are attending the annual AAA meeting, look for the NAPA information table (typically in or near the exhibition hall). Instant mentoring is scheduled for several hours during regular meeting hours. Mentees sign up at the NAPA information table or are mentored on the spot. This is an extremely popular offering and provides a real service to new and transitioning anthropologists of all backgrounds and interests.

Welcome To NAPA

NAPA promotes human-centered work applied to practical problems by linking a network of professional anthropologists working across employment sectors.  We support all anthropologists in bringing real solutions to communities, organizations, and policymakers, by offering advocacy, information, networks, mentoring, and continuing education.
