Community Governance Mentor Programme

1 Jun 2021 to 8 Jul 2021

Community Governance Mentor Programme

Are you currently on a Kāpiti Community Governing Board/Committee?

We are partnering with Mentoring Foundation New Zealand and the National Strategy for Community Governance to pilot a Governance Mentoring Programme right here in Kāpiti. The programme is free and will run for 6 months, starting in June.

Application to the mentor programme is open to anyone that is currently on the Governing Board/Committee of a community/not-for-profit group in Kāpiti. You will be matched with an experienced mentor whose skills and experience overlap with your current needs. You will receive programme training/orientation, six mentoring sessions, access to a learning network and support throughout the programme period.

The mentoring model is aimed to increase your effectiveness in community governance by developing your capability, connection and confidence.

'Mentoring is a relationship that supports and encourages the leadership journey of individuals and thier organisations'

Increase your effectiveness as a leader for your community organisation and be part of the first pilot as part of the National Action Plan For Community Governance. Register your interest below or contact manager@volunteerkapiti.org.nz if you would like more information.

Supported by the Capable Sector Project (a collaborative between Volunteer Kāpiti and Kāpiti Impact Trust - funded by the Kāpiti Coast District Council).

Note applications for the 2021 Programme starting in June have now closed. But do contact us at Volunteer Kāpiti if you would like to register your interest in any future programmes.
