Opportunity for mentoring

From: Monique M.

Hi folks-
THought I'd pass this along...

On behalf of Gavin Murphy, President of Annkissam, and myself, I am pleased to announce the launch of NPO Connect,<>, a new peer mentoring service for non-profit professionals, which we are piloting through the Metrowest Nonprofit Network (MNN).

Through this free, online service, participants connect to a peer who offers a specific skill set, such as fundraising, volunteer management, evaluation, operations, marketing/communications, and more. Once connected, the peer mentorship develops offline-over coffee, over the phone, or over a worktable-at the participants' convenience.

Participants may choose to become a mentor, to find a mentor, or both. When registering online, participants identify the skills they are seeking and/or the skills they are offering. They also choose the number of hours they can commit each month as well as the duration of the mentorship.

Eligibility is currently limited to staff, board members and other volunteers serving nonprofits in the Metrowest region, an area roughly bordered by Routes 128, 295, 2 and 109. Nonprofit professionals located just outside of these Metrowest borders may contact the Metrowest Nonprofit Network at [address removed]<mailto:[address removed]> to determine eligibility.

Beginning January 2010, we plan to launch a parallel pilot in partnership with the Young Non-Profit Professionals Network - Boston. We then hope to expand NPO Connect throughout Massachusetts, continuing to grow the site based on participants' feedback.

Other nonprofit professionals or networks with questions or interest in future participation may contact me at [address removed]<mailto:[address removed]> or[masked]-2672.

Please note: consultants representing their own firm rather than a specific nonprofit organization, and any others seeking financial gain, are not eligible.
