Peace X Peace is happy to announce the Spring dates of our Peace Through Mentorship Program.
This program is designed to foster a network of professional relationships between young women seeking to build peace and advance through their chosen professions and older women who seek to share their wisdom and experience. Mentors will be asked to provide mentees with guidance on career choices, answer questions about professional development, assist with developing resumes and finding internships and other opportunities, and instill in the mentee a sense of urgency and passion for peace and women’s rights. We want to ensure that the next generation of women are able to carry the torch for peace and empowerment by learning from the wisdom of those who have gone before them. As it is becoming increasingly important to empower women to stand for peace, this program is offering the chance for young women to gain extra support to be able to make a big difference. Please consider being a mentor today and aiding in the expansion of fields focused on peacebuilding and the empowerment of women worldwide!
Our Spring Sessions are:
Session 1: Feb 18- April 8
Session 2: March 11- April 28
Mentors are asked to commit 30-40 minutes each week (for a duration of 8 weeks) to the program.
**Mentee Applications will open next week- please check website then for application if you are interested in being mentored in the field of peacebuilding.
**All Applications due by February 7
