Grow great leaders

Mentoring is an effective means of strengthening and supporting leaders in your community, as well as supporting and strengthening your community organisations and your community. 

Mentoring is focused on the specific leadership priorities relevant to each leader, regardless of where they are on their leadership journey. Mentoring is also able to meet the current needs and goals of their organisation. It creates an enduring connection over an extended period of time, allowing learning and change to be put into practice and consolidated within their organisation.  


Mentoring is effective for all community leaders, volunteer or paid, organisational leaders, governance leaders, senior leaders, programme and project leaders.

Our programmes have been developed for the community sector and are run as a partnership with delivery led by partner organisations. This means that each programme can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the partner community.

Start your 

mentoring programme

We offer a simple and proven mentoring framework and an ongoing support to you as the community partner, that makes it easy for you to deliver a programme to meet the needs of your community.

We'd love to discuss how mentoring can achieve your outcomes.

Programme Design

Adopt one of our existing programme designs or partner with us to bespoke a programme specifically for your audience.

Our framework and resources are regularly reviewed and refined building on feedback from over 550 mentees, a mentor pool of over 350, and 23 community partners.

Training & Resources

Setting expectations from the outset is critical to the success of your mentoring programme.

We've developed an orientation for mentors and mentees that prepares them to make the most of their mentoring experience.

We also support you, as the community partner, with all the training and resources you need to ensure your programme is a success.

End to End Support & Networking

Our team supports you as the Community Partner throughout the entire programme period - from design through to evaluation.  

We also connect you with other Community Partners across Aotearoa to enable shared learnings and stronger sector relationships.

Programme Evaluation & Benchmarking

We provide a multi-faceted evaluation process that enables you to understand and report on the outcomes of your programme.

Learnings from each programme are reviewed and analysed to ensure we are continuously refining our framework to meet the needs of leaders across Aotearoa.
