The purpose of the program is to mentor and retain underrepresented racial/ethnic minority members by offering three different program levels. Program participation requires ACSM membership; involvement in ACSM meetings (regional and national) and committees; and pursuit of ACSM professional presentations, publications and fellowship. The program also provides mentors to participants at each level and provides participants with funding to perform the necessary steps to remain involved with ACSM from student member to ACSM Fellowship.

Mentoring assignments start at the ACSM Annual Meeting each year and continue throughout the year. To be a mentor you are required to attend the ACSM Annual Meeting and be an ACSM Fellow.
Mentors and Proteges Needed for the ACSM Mentoring Women to Fellowship Program
This is a new ACSM initiative intended to mentor ACSM members who are women to be more involved in ACSM meetings (regional and national) and committees through the pursuit of ACSM professional presentations, publications, fellowship, and leadership.

The goal is to assist these women with performing the necessary steps to remain involved with ACSM and to achieve ACSM Fellowship. Protege applications will be accepted October 1 to March 1 each year. Proteges must have a terminal degree to participate in this program. Matching mentors and proteges will occur March 1 through May 1 each year. Mentor volunteer forms will be accepted any time.
