Volunteer as a PM4NP Mentor

Bookmark and Share

Mentors are a critical component of the Project Management for Nonprofits program by helping a PM4NP program participant apply training knowledge to a real-life project.   It gives PMPs an opportunity to give back to the community utilizing their most valuable asset:  their experience.

Applications for mentors will be open in the June-September  timeframe.

Mentors are paired with a program participant from a nonprofit organization and provide coaching and advisement on a specific project, utilizing the e-toolbox forms and templates and the concepts presented in the training session.  Mentors and participants coordinate their personal meeting schedule, typically from 1-3 hours per week from October through April/May.

Prior to the mentoring engagement, mentors take part in an orientation session to provide knowledge on to best integrate the eToolbox and training elements into their coaching process.  Mentors meet periodically to trade ideas, and share progress and status updates with the PM4NP team.
