Mentorship Program

Our Mentorship Program helps Protégés advance their careers and Mentors to give back

Mentorship is the process in which successful individuals help budding professionals acquire new skills, increase their confidence, widen their perspective, and ultimately, enhance their careers and life.

Our Mentorship Program is designed to provide Protégés with guidance and advice on moving their careers to the next level, while also giving Mentors the opportunity to share their wealth of knowledge with up-and-coming PMs and Scrum Masters.

FALL Session applications close at Midnight, September 23rd, 2024!

What IS part of the Mentorship Program?

What IS NOT part of the Mentorship Program?

I enjoy enabling new Scrum Masters and Project Managers become more skilled. I am thrilled when I see the protégé/mentor pairs working together and seeing them connect at a professional and personal level. It is also very fulfilling to hear the protégés and mentors express how much they have enjoyed the mentorship program. The feeling of offering something of real value occurs when the mentors end up coming back to mentor in the next session.
