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. Our mentors include program alumni, college students, working professionals, and retirees. Everyone has something to offer to help our students #bethechange
Mentoring for the 2021-2022 school year will involve weekly 90 minute Zoom calls from October through May. Mentors must be available for a morning call (9-10:30am PST) or afternoon call (4-5:30pm PST) from Oct. 6th - June 1st), or both! During these sessions, you'll facilitate discussion in a breakout room with your pod to help them reflect on social justice issues, brainstorm project ideas, and support them in making change.
In addition to our weekly mentoring program, we'll also have one-off volunteer opportunities for folks to join a Pitch Coaching day to provide students with feedback on their ideas and support them in creating effective solutions. Stay tuned for details on our first Pitch Coaching day in Feb. 2022!
