Governance Mentors First Melbourne Training

Governance Mentors

I attended the Governance Mentors Melbourne training session for mentors. This training session was the first held in Melbourne, and was facilitated through Volunteer West.

Governance Mentors is a not-for-profit social enterprise that has been developed by Volunteering Western Victoria in response to improving the governance of community organisations.

Governance Mentors provides the opportunity for individuals who are passionate about community governance to volunteer as a mentor to a community board. Mentors are provided with training that enables them to learn more about the program, and what it takes to be a governance mentor.

Many mentors saw being involved as a professional development opportunity, or a way that they could give back to the community and assist an organisation to achieve its goals.

The first part of the training was a networking dinner that enabled mentors to meet and network in an informal context. The dinner also provided an introduction to the program and outlined the topics that would be discussed during the workshop.

Training for this program is highly interactive, with participants having the opportunity to share their experiences and learn from others as they discuss both governance and mentoring.

I am currently the Program Coordinator for Governance Mentors in Melbourne and have assisted Volunteer West with recruitment. It has been great to have such an overwhelmingly positive response to Governance Mentors and to ensure a diverse and highly capable skillset that will be offered to organisations.

We are currently looking to place our mentors with suitable organisations. If you are part of an organisation, or know of an organisation that would benefit from having a governance mentor, please contact me on natalia@synekamarketing.com.au or 1300 965 989.
