WCAPS Mentorship Program

WCAPS launched its first Mentorship Program in January 2019. The goal is to provide mentorship to our members and promote a sponsorship relationship between the mentor and mentee. The first mentorship program will concluded in May 2019 and the 2nd program will begin in November 2019.

Mentors and mentees decide if they prefer to meet face-to-face or via another means of communication that works for them. Since some of the mentors and mentees do not live in the same areas, online communication is the most appropriate method for continued engagement.

For the first program, mentors and mentees worked together and submitted a 5-minute video of the mentee explaining why diverse voices are needed to address a challenging global peace, security or conflict problem. They however have an option this time to submit an op-ed instead of doing the video.

If you are interested in the mentorship program, you can complete the application at https://forms.gle/2KWuv5q5Ja9pcP1s8 for mentees and https://forms.gle/ZkKV6P23Cbgw163V7 for mentors. We hope you will join us.

Questions regarding the WCAPS Mentorship Program should be addressed to wcaps@wcapsnet.org.
