I want to be a mentor

Green Mentor

Mentee-driven, Mentor-guided

 

Do you want to inspire the future generation of forest and conservation leaders? Apply below to become a Green Mentor.

Mentors in PLT Canada’s Green Mentor Program are committed to helping youth (ages 18–30) enhance their potential and identify new career paths in the forest and conservation sectors. Mentors make a six-month commitment and ensure they can meet their mentee 2–3 hours per month (in person or virtually).

  • “The Green Mentor program is one of the things that gives me hope about how the forest sector will grow in the future. We need more young people like [my mentee] to help move things forward. We also need young people to see what modern, sustainable forestry is all about so they can see themselves in a green career.”
