Coaching & Mentoring
Don't waste your talent. Use it for something truly meaningful. We need coaches and mentors like you!
Cultivate partners are matched with mentors and coaches who invest into the relationship, give of their best, and walk alongside our partners to help them build a successful program.
From the convenience of your own home, you can virtually support a partner.
Are you an accountant or financial manager? Teach someone how to build a budget and track their expenses.
Are you a graphic designer? Help a new program design their logo and brand.
Are you a marketing genius? Coach a startup organization how to tell their story and gain followers.
Whatever talent you have, our partners need you!
What's a Mentor?
Mentors help our partners grow as community leaders and advance their work. Mentors get to know their partners pretty well, spending 2-3 hours per month guiding them through our leadership development curriculum, working on goals, brainstorming ideas, talking through project difficulties & barriers.
Basically a mentor is a partner's first point of contact.
Mentors work with our partners approximately 2-3 hours per month, using video chats, phone calls, and emails. Plus any additional hours that you are willing to give. We ask that all mentors commit to a minimum of 12 months, for the sake of what is best for our partners.
What's a Coach?
Coaches give of their talents, knowledge, and resources to help our partners better understand a specific topic needed for their success as a community project leader.
Coaches get to work with several partners, teaching and advising our partners. A coach may spend just a few sessions with a partner, or as many as the partner needs.
Coaches work with our partners that are in need of that specific type of coaching approximately 1-2 hours per session, using video chats, phone calls, and emails, plus any hours that you are willing to offer offline to help that partner's project. Each coach determines his own hours available for coaching sessions per month, and we match you with that number of coaching calls. We ask that all coaches commit to a minimum of 6 months, for the sake of what is best for our partners.
Our first cohort of volunteers will come together winter 2019. We will provide you with training and personally match you with our partners. If you are interested to learn more about this new program, fill out the form and we'll connect to see if this is the right fit.
We look forward to meeting you!
