As we close out the YP4 Regional Trainings, Fellows are moving into the next stage of their Fellowship year. During the four months following the regional trainings, each fellow is paired with a mentor, often a YP4 alumni. The matching is based on skill set, issue area, and regional proximity. The mentor guides the fellow through an individual leadership development plan and helps him or her to set realistic and measurable goals for their individual leadership and the Blueprint for Social Justice – the heart of the fellowship work.
Mentorship matches are based on alignment between Fellow interests, needs and mentor experience and expertise. When selecting mentors, we consider skills, issue knowledge, and individual approaches to social change. Through a strong mentor relationship, Fellows will have the support and guidance they need to build and implement their Blueprint for Social Justice.
Interested in being a Mentor to this year’s Fellows? Sign up here, they’re counting on you.
