Mentoring Foundation of New Zealand

Who are we?

Mentoring Foundation is a non-profit organisation committed to fostering and supporting community leadership through mentoring. We believe in the power of genuine relationships and our programmes are designed to make real connections between real people aimed at getting results for our participants, our community partners and their communities. 

Our approach has been developed by people working directly in the community sector, is focused on intentional and authentic person-to-person engagement, and is tailored to meet the needs of each partner and their community to build confident, capable and connected leaders.

Mentoring Foundation has been working across Aotearoa New Zealand, partnering with community organisations to bring mentoring support to community leaders - organisation, governance, senior, project and programme leaders - since 2018.
