Become a Mentor
We are looking for experienced business owners – men and women – from all BC communities who are interested in volunteering as a mentor.
We have women waiting to be matched with entrepreneurs who can share their perspective in a One-to-One Mentoring relationship. We also need Chartered Professional Accountants to facilitate Financial Fitness Peer Mentoring Groups this fall.
- Share your business experience and knowledge
- Make a positive impact in your mentee’s business
- Give back to your community
- Make new connections with a network of volunteers throughout the province
- Learn new skills—93% of WEC mentors say that being a mentor has helped them in their own business!
As a volunteer mentor, you want to provide the best advice and resources to your mentees. But you don’t need to have all the answers—we’re here to support you! To be a mentor, you should have :
- Five years, or equivalent experience, operating your own business
- The willingness to communicate, empathize and inspire trust
- The ability to commit to six sessions over a six-month period (minimum of 2-3 hours per month)
