Mentorship Program

We all have gifts which we can share with others but the greatest gift is our time and attention.

SEWN’s pilot project in Mentorship, starting in May 2017, will match up 4 to 6 pairs of mentors and mentees and provide them with the tools to make that sharing effective and fruitful for both. The commitment is a minimum 4 hours per month. The objectives are to develop a member’s skills related to business, leadership, and building and managing relationships.

Are you interested?

We’ve put together a package with a full description of the program, plus forms for prospective mentors and mentees to fill out and return to SEWN.

Quick Start Guides:

Once you’ve and filled out an application, please email us your application. We would like to have a full contingent of applicants by Friday. June 9th.

Since this is a pilot program, we probably won’t be able to match everyone up. Those who are selected for the program will be asked to give us detailed feedback as they go, so we can refine our pilot and create an enduring resource for the Sunshine Coast.

SEWN is administering this program, helping to match up applicants, but we are not part of the relationship between mentors and mentees. That’s up to you.

Our volunteer board is excited and enthusiastic about bringing this opportunity to our members. We look forward to working with many of you to create a Mentorship program that fulfills the needs of Self Employed Women on the Sunshine Coast.
