Are you a university student or recent grad looking to prepare for your career and impact beyond your education years?
Are you a professional, marketplace leader, or business owner looking to pass on your heart, knowledge and experience to the next generation?
This summer, Power to Change – Students and LeaderImpact are partnering to offer a career mentoring program that will help with both. LeaderImpact is a branch of P2C with the mission of helping marketplace leaders develop professionally, personally, and spiritually.
Our goal is to pair each student or recent grad with someone further down the road who has seen success (and learnt from failure) in the working world while maintaining integrity and having a positive impact on others.
While many schools offer mentoring opportunities, the uniqueness of this connection is the intentional focus on going deeper than just outward success. Our mentors are Christians who resonate with Jesus’ rhetorical question, “What good is it for a person to gain the whole world, yet lose their soul?”
Anyone is welcome. If you are a Christian, this is a great opportunity to learn how to integrate your faith and your career. If you are from another religious background or none at all, no one will push beliefs on you and we trust there will be lots to learn from each other. The content is self-directed, flexible, and informal.
Meet 3-4 times for an hour from June to August.
(Out of respect for the mentor/mentee you get paired with, please only sign up if you intend to respond to messages)
Potential Topics of Discussion
- Finding Meaning & Purpose in Your Work
- Career Pathing
- Impacting Others in Your Workplace and in the World
- Financial Stewardship & Generosity
- Dealing with Difficulties & Disappointment
- Professional Ethics
- Work-Life Balance
Online or in-person, depending on the proximity of your pairing.
For pairing, we will prioritize general career aspirations first and proximity second, while trying to account for special requests.
We will provide a conversation guide based on the above seven topics, but each interaction is meant to be informal and flexible to meet the needs of the mentee and the experience of the mentor.
There will be a 30-min launch event online on the evening of Monday, June 6.
