Mentors are an essential part of the training program. Mentors are invited to a Social Meet & Greet where they will meet their nonprofit leader and fellow mentors for the first time. They will then attend an orientation workshop, followed by three coaching sessions over a two month period, to support, evaluate and give feedback to their nonprofit leader on their three-minute pitch. (Attendance at the orientation and all three sessions is desirable, but not required.) In addition, they are encouraged to mentor their nonprofit leader between sessions to continue to refine their pitch.
The total time commitment is 10 – 20 hours over the two-month period.
You do not have to be an SVP Arizona Partner in order to mentor, all community members are welcome to volunteer!
