The NYC UXPA's Mentorship Program pairs UX professionals who want to harness the power of our rich UX community by learning from one another. We pair mentors and mentees 1:1 based on overlapping interests, goals, and experiences, and foster the relationship over a six-month period.

Visit our FAQs for more details.

 The application period is officially over for the 2017 Program Cycle. Please stay tuned for announcements via our free newsletter or by becoming an annual member.

Remember the person who inspired you to make a project better or gave you guidance on how to navigate through a difficult work situation? Now you can be a mentor and help someone, too!


  • Are you currently working in a UX-related job?
  • Do you enjoy the rewarding feeling of helping others?
  • Can you spare an hour a month to help?

We welcome all levels of UX practitioners to participate as mentors. Your experience counts!

Learn more about joining our program as a Mentor.

There is so much information about UX that you might not learn from classes or in your current job. Whether you want to research, present your work, make a career change or just brainstorm, a mentor can make a big difference.


  • You have specific goals to establish or further a career in UX.
  • You are willing to establish and maintain a mentor/mentee relationship.
  • You have the passion, focus, and curiosity to dedicate six months to working one-on-one with a mentor to achieve your goals.
