ASA’s New Ventures in Leadership program is a one of a kind leadership development program for persons of color in the field of aging. Part of the success of the New Ventures in Leadership program comes from the many leaders who have served as mentors to the Partners. Mentoring is a mutually beneficial and rewarding opportunity, we hope you will consider this chance to give back to the aging network.
The current class of NVL Partners recently started their leadershp journey in March at the Aging in America conference. Mentors are expected to be available one hour each month for up to 12 months from the time a match is made. This may extend slightly beyond the Partner's completion of the program next spring if desired by both the mentor and Partner. Meetings are conducted by telephone, or in person on occasion if a mutual opportunity arises. A mentor helps the Partner to see problems more clearly, but is not to solve the problem--rather be a soundboard to provide tools or perspectives to the Partner that will give them the confidence to problem solve on their own.
