Mentoring Communities for Associations

It is a common belief that mentoring relationships can form naturally within an organization and this is often the basis whereby associations are formed. However, building a mentoring program from scratch, one that scales as an organization grows, may seem daunting.

Membership associations often attempt to foster mentoring relationships as a retention strategy for members. Often, these programs are run by volunteers with limited time and budget resources. Mentoring is often the number one resource requested and the most poorly executed.

The mentoring resources offered by Diverse Talent Strategies were developed with associations in mind. At Diverse Talent Strategies, we believe that every membership organization should be able to offer a structured mentoring program as a member benefit and that making this offering should be easy.

Working with us to bring the mentoring resources to your members allows you to:

  • offer scalable, effective leadership programming that is easy to implement – simply select the employees and let us do the rest!
  • provide quality professional development that is cost effective.
  • develop powerful mentoring relationships among members.
  • receive real-time data that tracks outcomes.
