How to find a Mentor. This short video will help you to find a project management mentor through our e-mentoring scheme. You will be shown:

  • How to register on our website
  • How to choose a mentor
  • How the mentoring relationship works

The scheme is for people working in international development or the third sector/civil society. You should be involved in managing projects or seeking to become a project manager. Being mentored enables you to learn from another person’s vision, experience, and learning, and get professional guidance on the challenges you encounter. Project Managers Against Poverty has partnered with Humentum (Lingos) and MentorNet to provide this service at no cost to users. All our mentors are volunteers.

You should possess good communication skills, have a commitment to learning and development and able to devote sufficient time and energy to the role. All our mentors are volunteers.
