AFP Ottawa is committed to providing opportunities for young people to learn more about our dynamic philanthropic sector. With the support of RBC, we’ve created the AFP Ottawa Future Leaders mentorship program, the first of its kind in Canada.

As part of this program, promising young people aged 19-35 from the national capital region are paired with experienced fundraising professionals, and together they attend AFP Ottawa’s Fundraising Day for networking, skills, and professional development.

  • You’ll be invited to attend the official Fundraising Day pre-reception on May 20, 2020
  • Develop your leadership skills, and the knowledge that you’re helping develop the next generation of leaders in our industry!

Benefits for protégés:

  • You’ll be matched with an experienced fundraiser whose professional interests align with your own (where possible), and they will help you network and answer questions throughout Fundraising Day
