Are you a new non-profit Executive Director or CEO eager to learn from an experienced local mentor?

Apply to the Executive Director Mentorship Program and settle into your role by exchanging insight, opening new lines of communication, and expanding your network!

Established non-profit leaders in the non-profit sector are eager to become mentors to the next generation of leaders. The series partners newer Executive Directors or CEOs with fewer than 3 years of experience in the role with established leaders with 7+ years of experience leading organizations, offering opportunities to transfer knowledge and skills to those eager to learn. 

There are limited mentee spots available in this program, so be sure to reserve your spot!

WHAT TO EXPECT - At the Matching Event

At our matching event in February 2022 (please note, date is to be determined), mentees will have a chance to connect with all the mentors in a ‘speed dating’ format. At the end of this event, all mentees and mentors will offer their preferred choices for mentorship, which ECVO will collate into final pairings.

WHAT TO EXPECT - Beyond the Matching Event

Mentors have committed to a minimum of three follow-up meetings in the months following the matching event.

Once notified of their match, mentees will be required to follow-up with their assigned mentor and coordinate these additional meetings. The shape and frequency of the meetings are up to you: mentees are encouraged to guide the mentorship as they see fit, tailoring the scope and scale of their meetings to be able to meet their unique needs. Of course, the meetings needn't stop at three. We hope that these initial meetings will turn into lasting connections within the broader non-profit community.

In June 2022, all mentees are invited to attend a wrap up lunch event where they'll have an opportunity to reflect on the process and make new connections for the future!
