Who can be a GeoMentor?

  • Are you passionate about the importance of geography education?  
  • Are you a geographer, cartographer, or educator that can communicate the benefits of GIS for illustrating geographic concepts and context in the classroom?   
  • Have you taken a GIS course, used GIS at your job, or developed educational activities that use GIS?  

Then YOU can be a GeoMentor and we could use your help! Register today!

The AAG is building a diverse and talented network of GeoMentors by recruiting from the broad GIS community including all disciplines engaged with GIS, from the social to the physical sciences.  Individuals across all sectors (public, private, academic, NGOs) will be part of this exciting opportunity to build student interest in and enthusiasm for the endless application of GIS.  Whether your expertise is speaking on the general topic of the power of maps and GIS or you are an expert GIS user with advanced spatial analysis skills, you can play an important role as a GeoMentor.  From undergraduate students and GIS technicians, to professors and geographic information scientists, and everyone in between, we welcome the entire GIS community, to volunteer their skills and experience as a GeoMentor. 

Previous experience with ArcGIS Online is not required; we have many training resources available to help you quickly gain basic skills that will make you an asset to K-12 classrooms.
