AFPNEO provides its members many learning opportunities to help them and the nonprofits they serve. One such opportunity is our mentoring program.
The goal of the mentoring program is to pair seasoned professionals with people new to the field, those transitioning job responsibilities, or those searching for additional networking opportunities.
Mentors/mentees will meet as pairs with group events held throughout the year for all mentors and mentees.
The pairs will be expected to have at least 6 conversations; conversations may be in-person, via phone, and/or email. Both the mentor and the mentee are encouraged to keep a simple log of meetings and general discussion topics as a guide for future program evaluation.
These relationships are meant to be career-specific and not used or construed in any way as a consulting relationship. Mentors are encouraged to recommend appropriate resources i.e. courses, workshops, educational opportunities, vendors, or consultants. The mentoring program is not a job placement service.
We recommend that mentors and mentees tell their employers about their participation in the program. Both must respect that the information they share about their organizations is confidential.
