Mentor the Future of the Nonprofit Sector

Jan 30, 2012 by

As I’ve mentioned before, I am part of the leadership team of The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of DC (YNPNdc). It’s a fantastic organization. One of our newest initiatives is a mentoring program for YNPNdc Professional Members. I believe that everyone has a duty to mentor other nonprofits leaders so I wanted to share this opportunity with you and encourage you to sign up as a mentor today!

YNPNdc invites you to join our Mentoring Program launch as a Mentor for our growing group of Professional Members. Our Professional Members work for a diverse set of organizations in the DC area and are committed to advancing their careers and the sector through growing their network and learning from experienced nonprofit professionals like you.

The Commitment

We ask that you join a 90-minute online Mentoring Roulette session the evening of March 1 to chat with potential mentees, lend advice during several 8-minute chat sessions with various participants, and determine your interest in continuing a mentoring relationship with mentees you meet following the online session. Sharing contact information is at your discretion.

Throughout the month of March, YNPNdc will coach the mentees on expectations and how to get the most out of a mentoring relationship. If you have secured one or more mentee relationships following the online session, these participants will be guided through their experience with you to ensure realistic expectations and to maximize mentee learning.

You will also be invited to join us in celebrating this first mentoring series on March 28 with an in-person networking happy hour for mentors and mentees. It will be up to you and your mentee(s) if you would like to continue the mentoring relationship after March 28.

To Learn More and Sign Up

Please see the Mentoring Program Info Page on YNPNdc’s website to learn more and sign up now as a YNPNdc Mentor by February 29.
