Mentoring is about harnessing the philanthropic sector’s skills to benefit the next generation of fundraising leaders!
To improve our services to members, we implemented a free mentoring scheme. We developed a new way of supporting you as you seek professional skills by allowing you to be supported by a mentor: an experienced professional who conforms to our code of ethics.
The mentor aims to develop excellence standards to make you a better philanthropy professional. He or she has a number of different objectives:
- Build your confidence
- Help clarify the goals you are pursuing
- Help you develop to your full potential
- Offer counsel on the basis of shared confidential information
- Provide new knowledge
- Expand your network
The mentor’s main role is not to find the answer to your questions, but to prompt you to think differently and evolve in a new and better direction. His or her actions are concerned with both your social skills and your well-being.
