One of the many benefits associated with an AFP membership is a robust mentorship program. Those who have taken advantage of this great opportunity will tell you our Mentorship Program is a very rewarding experience.
AFP South Dakota offers a broad range of experience within our membership, so you can be confident you’ll be paired with someone that will complement your professional development needs. Our mentors have been foundation presidents, vice presidents of operations, and directors in a variety of fundraising areas. We have both mentees and mentors complete a questionnaire so we can match strengths and weaknesses. We also poll the participants to gauge their preferences for their type of mentor. Our participants have shared glowing remarks about the program and AFP SD highly recommends that members take advantage of this great opportunity.
Mentorship classes typically run throughout the entire calendar year and we ask that our participants commit to meeting or communicating at a minimum of once a month.
