Since its inception, APECS has aimed to provide a continuum of knowledge in polar research and foster interactions between their members and experienced polar researchers and professionals. To continue this service, they are launching a mentorship program consisting of an online database of mentors who are willing to share their knowledge with talented early-career researchers. The initiative is an extension of the mentor panels that APECS already runs at major conferences, and will provide an unprecedented opportunity for mentors to network with early-career scientists.

The level of involvement is entirely up to the individual mentor, but activities may include meeting students at conferences, participating in APECS mentor panels, and providing general career guidance for young scientists.

Signing up to become a mentor is a quick process, and can be done online
