Female Mentors Needed

We are looking for female mentors to provide support and guidance to our 2018 Women in Politics participants. 

Are you interested in a volunteer opportunity that supports the next generation of female leaders?  We are looking for mentors with a passion for youth development who recognize that making an impact in young people’s lives means putting youth and their needs first.  We value mentors who are socially and culturally sensitive, love listening deeply, and see their mentees as people with unique backgrounds and are excited to support them in a variety of ways—including with emotional, mental, and professional development resources. Through mentoring we offer a commitment to relevant, transformative relationships with young women who are creating our common future.  To apply, fill out the Google form by Friday, June 29th to be considered.  

The mentorship will include a face-to-face training/support circle prior to the conference, a pairing session on July 27th, and 2-4 hours a month for at least a year with your mentee.

We are looking for 22 mentors in total, so please help us spread the word and share this amazing opportunity with your network and colleagues!

Conference Dates: Wednesday, July 25th through Friday, July 27th.
