Our Process

The Beacon Mentor Committee strives to offer mentoring opportunities that best fit the needs and interests of our membership.  We will seek Partners to facilitate Beacon Mentoring Services. When a new partner is identified the Mentor Program Committee will create a project based on the Partner's needs for expertise and type of help required. A Program Coordinator will be identified for each Partner. The program coordinator will oversee the relationship between Beacon Mentors and Partner protégés. The coordinators role is to liaise with the partner's program coordinator; recruit Beacon mentor volunteers; collaborate on holding an orientation meeting; work with the Partner to define guiding principles, project results and guidelines for working together; and coordinate all project work with the Partner’s Project Coordinator.
