Naturally Boulder Mentorship Matching Program

The Naturally Boulder Mentorship Matching Program is designed to serve our members’ personal and professional growth and stimulate a culture of lifelong learning for our future natural and organic industry leaders.

This free program connects experienced natural and organic industry professionals with aspiring and mid-career professionals in a supportive environment to share knowledge, wisdom, and real-world industry experience. Mentors and mentees will embark on a 6-month mentoring relationship through monthly meetings.

Member Benefits

• Grow your Front Range natural and organic products industry network.

• Engage in cross-generational learning with your peers.

• Strengthen your dedication to practicing leadership skills, at the mentee and mentor level.

Time Commitment

Once mentees and a mentor have been connected, the groups will proceed through a 6-month relationship journey, meeting at least once a month.

Matching

Mentoring relationships are most successful when the mentee has the opportunity to choose their mentor. During the application process, potential mentees will be provided a list of mentors and be asked to list their top 2-3 mentor choices. Mentors have the option to agree or decline matches.

Mentors will have the opportunity to structure their engagements. Some will opt for casual meetings; others are interested in a structured program with homework between sessions. We invite mentors to tell us about the topics they’d like to cover during this period or the groups who may best benefit from their expertise, in an effort to secure optimal matches. At minimum, we ask all to agree to a 90 minute meeting via the electronic platform of the mentor’s choice, once a month, at a time that’s convenient for all participants. (Mentors are not required to meet with mentees individually but may opt to do so if they prefer.)
