San Gabriel/ Foothill Association of Community Colleges (SanFACC). 

The SanFACC Mentor program seeks to build both individual and regional leadership capacity among full-time/permanent community college employees.  Mentees with a clear interest in entering or advancing in community college management will be paired with mentors from neighboring colleges already serving in an administrative role.  This experience provides a safe environment to develop a knowledge base that supports effective leadership and management.  Participants are enriched by experiencing the best practices and lessons learned from colleagues across the region. The program is sponsored by the San Gabriel/ Foothill Association of Community Colleges (SanFACC). Participating colleges in this year’s Mentor Program include Chaffey College, Glendale College, Mt. San Antonio College, Pasadena City College, Rio Hondo College and Cerritos College.

Benefits: Mentees participating in the program will receive one-on-one assistance and advice regarding their own professional development, and have the opportunity to job shadow and gain experience and insight into community college management.  They will apply their expanded skills and knowledge to their work, therefore benefiting their colleges.  It is also expected the Mentors will benefit from the experience and perspective their mentees can offer.  Please note that participation in the program does not guarantee promotion within an organization. Recruitment for college positions will continue to be open to all and provide equal opportunities to job applicants.
