Become a mentor! artsVest™ launching new program this fall in Ontario

Our flagship artsVest™ program is launching a new mentorship training component across Ontario in fall 2014. The artsVest™ Ontario Mentorship Program will run from 2014-2018 and is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Participating artsVest organizations will now have ongoing support and expert guidance on corporate sponsorship and board governance issues through a combination of group, peer and one-on-one mentoring sessions. This additional training will equip mentees with further tools to develop sponsorship opportunities with local business and build organizational capacity.

We are currently recruiting mentors for the 2014-2015 program cycle. Mentoring sessions will begin in October 2014 and end May 2015. The mentor call is open to seasoned professionals from a non-profit or corporate background who have practiced or are currently practicing corporate sponsorship and/or board governance (with at least three years of experience).
