What is Speed Mentoring?

Speed mentoring is a lot like speed dating—it’s a series of short, focused conversations between mentors and protégés. It’s a great way to test out mentoring on both sides, and it offers protégés a chance to speak with a number of people with different experiences in a short period of time.

You’re an ideal “speed protégé” if:

  • You have zero to four years of fundraising experience
  • You want to learn more about specific areas of fundraising and career options in the non-profit sector

You’re an ideal “speed mentor” if:

  • You have 5+ years of fundraising experience
  • You want to share your expertise with new members of our industry

There’s no commitment required (but if you meet a great match, you’re welcome to continue it), it’s a free event, and food will be provided. You do not need to be an AFP member to participate, but you must register in advance.

Registration closes Sunday January 19th at midnight.
