Call for Mentors

I Am, We Are (IAWA) is seeking dedicated mid-career professionals with a passion for youth development to volunteer as career mentors. Mentors are a key component of the support network IAWA strives to create for our "Ambassadors" (high school students/secondary school learners) that includes nurturing adults, peer mentors, advocates, role models, and a cohort of positive peers.

COMMITMENT:

Mentors are asked to commit to the following:

-Support an ambassador's career exploration and development from July 2022-July 2023

-Once a month hour-long calls with an ambassador providing career guidance through activities and reflections from IAWA's Career Dreamscaping Guide

-1 3-hour long training, 1 hour long mid program check-in, and 1-hour long closing reflection with IAWA team

Serve as a positive, encouraging, and consistent role model

The mentor program and career dreamscaping experience will culminate in Ambassador career presentations during the Morafe Leadership Programme Career Conference in July 2023.
