Walsworth Yearbooks begins new Adviser Mentor Program

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

In an effort to provide assistance and make life easier for the hundreds of yearbook advisers across the country working with students to create yearbooks in their schools, Walsworth Yearbooks announced the launch of a new Adviser Mentor Program.

Walsworth’s Adviser Mentor Program will match up experienced yearbook advisers (mentors), who have successfully created a yearbook, with new advisers (mentees). The mentors will work with Walsworth Yearbooks sales reps to provide new advisers with additional support, camaraderie and wisdom.

Advisers who become official Walsworth mentors in the program will receive several benefits, including bi-weekly emails with tips and ideas and exclusive access to Jim Jordan, the 1996 JEA Yearbook Adviser of the Year and adviser of the national award-winning Decamhian yearbook at Del Campo High School in Fair Oaks, California.

Veteran advisers interested in becoming mentors, or new advisers looking to join the program to be matched up with a mentor, can let us know by emailing mentorship@walsworth.com.
