About the NBMBAA®
100K Mentoring Challenge
We match members based on professional skills and needs. For non-minor members, one-on-one mentoring can be at Chapter events or at an outside location.
Mentors host small sessions around specific topic. Attendees register in advance for a session with two or three other members for a focused small group discussion.
Mentors hold larger workshops with up to fifteen members where hands-on activities are encouraged for skill building.
Our digital platform will connect members throughout the US and Canada with mentors that match their needs. Video Chatting and messaging will help create long-lasting mentor relationships.
Held at local Chapters, these sessions give attendees five to ten minutes to meet with different mentors to find a good skill and personality fit for establishing a longer-term relationship.
“Graduate students with mentors are also likely to be more satisfied with their programs, be more involved in professional organizations, and have a stronger sense of professional identity.” – W. Brad Johnson PhD in American Psychological Association.
Having a Mentor
Professionals at any stage in their career can benefit from mentoring. Studies show that mentoring increases the likelihood that youth will enroll in higher education, volunteer regularly, become a mentor themselves and even hold leadership positions. As an NBMBAA® member, you can take full advantage of the experience professionals in our network who will help nurture your career.
