The FUSION Foundation Mentoring Program has been an informal circle of friends since the inception of FUSION. As the years have progressed, The FUSION Foundation Council has placed more focus, invested more time and human capitol toward mentoring as a direct result of listening to leaders in the community and responding to their stated needs.
The FUSION Foundation is not your corporate mentoring business model. At The FUSION Foundation you learn, often, by doing!
The Value of Mentoring
At its most basic level, mentoring helps because it assures a passionate community leader that there is someone who is invested in their aspirations. Our community social entrepreneur is not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges.
Think back. Did you sit at you desk sometimes wondering how you were going to go one more day without some support? Do you remember planning for your first large gathering or beginning to hire paid staff? Simple things that seem easy or straightforward to you now may appear to be an overwhelming feat to a community leader who is just beginning their journey or who has encountered an obstacle along the way.
Mentors provide their mentees with an experienced friend who is there to help in any number of situations.
Support for education
Support with day-to-day living
Support in the workplace
The number of ways mentoring can support a community social entrepreneur are as varied as the people involved in each program. The personal stories of community social entrepreneurs are impressive. Take a look at mentoring success stories to see how mentoring works from different perspectives.
