Today is Giving Tuesday – a global movement dedicated to giving and volunteering each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a time when individuals, charities and companies join together to give back and think of others. Celebrating Giving Tuesday doesn’t necessarily require your money or donations. Instead, mentoring a newcomer could be the most meaningful way to join this world wide celebration. Here are simple steps for you to become a mentor.
Step 1. Define your expertise & knowledge to give
Think about your experience and knowledge relevant to mentoring a professional newcomer. In our mentoring program, TRIEC Mentoring Partnership, mentors are matched with mentees who have the same career paths. You are encouraged to become a mentor if you have worked for at least two years in your field in Canada, and if you want to develop professionally. Giving just 18 hours of your time over three months could help change someone’s life. Thanks to mentors, 77% of mentees find a job in their field within six months after completing the program.
Step 2. Learn about the benefits you’ll gain as a mentor
To support your participation, we give you practical mentoring resources including webinars, workshops, e-learning modules and networking events. These will help you grow further as a leader – 95% of our mentors now say they are better able to motivate, coach and develop people. Click here to see details.Step 3.
