We'd like to invite you to participate in the USGBC-LA Mentorship Program! One of the benefits of our unique community is the opportunity to become a mentor through curated matchmaking and activities as part of the USGBC-LA initiatives, including the recently launched Green Building Corps program.
Below is an overview of what you can expect as program participants. Please review each item and ensure you are prepared to fulfill all aspects of the program:
Objective of the Mentorship Program: The USGBC-LA Mentorship Program is designed to connect established professionals with students, recently graduated and/or emerging professionals to increase knowledge of the green building industry, aid mentees in achieving their professional goals and promote diversity, equity and inclusion across the industry.
Duration and Commitment: The mentoring relationship will last for no less than six (6) months. Mentors will commit to at least one (1) hour per month as an advisor for the selected mentee(s). However, it is recommended that Mentors commit 2 sessions a month.
Format of Meetings: The first meeting will be held at the Mentor Meet & Greet Session (date TBD). Subsequent ‘catch ups’ can be via phone, video calls, or coffee date when possible, but should be in a mutually agreeable location and format.
Progress Reporting: Throughout the year, USGBC-LA staff will send surveys to program participants to determine if the relationship is mutually beneficial, if it’s working well, and if there is anything that needs to be changed or addressed.
If you agree with the terms, please sign up today and we will be sending you the mentorship agreement, covering the items above (in addition to confidentiality and no-fault termination), for your signature through DocuSign.
