Project Learning Tree Canada’s mentorship program connects youth (ages 18-30) with Green Jobs professionals. #MyGreenMentor helps create a highly valuable relationship, where the mentee expands their forest and conservation knowledge, goals and network and the mentor fosters the next generation of leaders, shares advice and gains a new perspective.
Mentorship is a supportive relationship between an experienced professional (the mentor) and someone newer to the field (the mentee). The mentor shares advice and their experiences so that the mentee can learn more about the workforce. But the mentor also learns from the mentee, as they have a fresh perspective of the field.
Our Green Jobs mentorship program is powered by an industry-leading platform and algorithm that matches people based on their personalities, goals, interests and more. This helps ensure that our mentor-mentee pairs build successful, productive and trusting relationships.
Together, pairs work on goals to challenge and help each other grow. And PLT Canada helps nurture the mentorship relationships with communication tips, networking advice and problem-solving tools.
Do you want to expand your Green Jobs knowledge, goals and network?
Do you want to inspire the next generation of forest and conservation leaders and gain a new perspective?
We believe good mentorship programs are mentee-driven and mentor-guided. After receiving feedback from our network of youth and industry professionals, we decided to create six-month matches. This short time commitment allows for flexibility and multiple mentorship opportunities a year.
PLT Canada mentees get the chance to build meaningful connections with professionals in forestry and conservation and learn more about Green Job opportunities.
Our mentors say that they have gained just as much as their mentee from their relationships. By committing 2-3 hours a month, you can make a difference in a young person’s career and help your sector.
