Demystifying Mentoring: Building a support network

Monday, September 24, 2012 from 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Many young nonprofit professionals find themselves mystified when it comes to finding a mentor and developing a meaningful mentoring relationship.
  • Who is my ideal mentor?
  • Can I have more than one mentor?
  • Do I have enough experience to be a mentor to someone else?
YNPN Twin Cities is offering this event as a launching pad for our members to build their own mentoring networks. The event will provide expert sourced information on building both traditional and nontraditional mentoring relationships, while also going a step further to allow attendees to begin building peer-to-peer mentor circles right at the event. These circles will provide the structure and support needed to kickstart a deeper level of future networking and mentoring for attendees.
Space is limited for this innovative event, so register soon. After registration, attendees will be pre-matched into peer based mentor circles. The success of the mentoring circles is dependent on attendees being committed to participating in the event day-of, so please, since space is limited, only register if confident of ability to make the event.
Move a giant step forward in building your ideal mentorship network and join us on September 24!
