MENTORS: HELP US BUILD THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHANGEMAKERS

VIRTUAL MENTORS NEEDED

 

The Changemaker Project is a global challenge for youth ages 13-24. Students all over the world join an online course in which they learn about social and environmental justice issues, work together in teams to design solutions to problems they care about, and pitch their projects for funding at our annual Global Pitch event. We need volunteers to act as virtual mentors for our teams!

The goal of the mentoring program is to connect our teams with folks of different backgrounds and skill sets who can offer guidance on their projects. Depending on the type of project each team is doing, we try to pair them with a mentor who is best suited to help them. Our mentors include college students, working professionals, and retirees. Everyone has something to offer to help our students #bethechange.

This year, our mentoring sessions will take place over Zoom on the first Saturday of the month in March, April, and May. You'll have the option of a morning session (10:30-11:30am) or an evening session (7-8pm) depending on what best fits your schedule.

 

During the mentoring sessions, you'll join a breakout room with your team to learn about their project and offer support. Mentors are encouraged to ask questions and offer expertise, resources, and connections that may be helpful.
