Emerging Leaders Mentoring Program
The Emerging Leaders Mentoring Program matches Next Generation Leaders who are graduates of the PLF Emerging Leaders Collaborative with Mentors who are graduates of the PLF Leaders Collaborative. Next Generation Leaders and Mentors are carefully matched, and they meet together once a month over a period of seven months with a primary focus on the Next Generation Leader’s professional goals. The process is facilitated by clear guidelines and tools provided by PLF designed to enhance communication and maximize impact.
