Since 2007, Rotary has been partnering with Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria to provide mentoring programs for high performing leaders. As a result the mentees build sustainable partnerships with community groups and lead with integrity.
For Rotarian’s, mentoring provides a way to strengthen leadership in the community.
Our mentors support emerging leaders to help build their confidence, self-awareness, professional skills, network and develop a greater understanding of their potential as a leader to influence and motivate others.
As a Rotarian if you looking for a way to make a positive contribution leave a lasting legacy, bring your leadership experience to good use and pay it forward by becoming an Rotary Mentor.
As a mentor, your role will be to share your professional and personal leadership skills and experiences, to help support, grow and develop a participant’s leadership skills and confidence.
Your role is to actively listen, encourage and provide constructive comments, while offering openness, trust, respect and willingness to share. Mentoring is also a great way to strengthen your own leadership capabilities, gain satisfaction from developing others and give back to the community. Mentoring provides a unique opportunity for both the mentor and mentee to engage, learn and be challenged by perspectives as well as be exposed to new ideas and cultures.
