MENTORS: HELP US BUILD THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHANGEMAKERS
VIRTUAL MENTORS NEEDED
The Changemaker Project is a global challenge for youth ages 13-18. 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.
We provide training for mentors to ensure you are successful in supporting your students. The commitment as a mentor this year is to attend four Zoom calls, on the first Saturday of the month from Feb.-May, 10-11am PST. During these Zoom calls, you'll join a breakout room with your team or "mentee" and coach them on their project. You will learn about their initiative and provide feedback, support, insights, and ideas as they develop it. We hope you will join us in supporting our students as they launch their projects!
