EPIP LA | 2022 Mentorship Program

Posted on November 11, 2021

EPIP LA is thrilled to announce that it is accepting applications for its ninth year of the Mentorship Program. Through its Mentorship Program, EPIP LA aims to provide participants with the tools needed to develop and maintain meaningful connections with experienced leaders and their peers. 

The EPIP LA Mentorship program connects an emerging leader in the philanthropic field with a seasoned leader to serve as a mentor and like-minded peers to support them on their journey. 

Participants meet to discuss their individual professional interests and brainstorm potential matches. The Steering Committee assists in matching each participant with a mentor in the field who is available to meet on a regular basis for the year (approximately four meetings total). On alternate months, the cohort of mentees meets to discuss their professional challenges, progress on personal goals, and to share learning from their mentor relationships. Participants need to be available at least once a month for the duration of the program.

To apply for the 2022 Mentorship Program cohort, click here. Applications are due by Friday, December 17, 2021. Applicants must be available to participate in an evening group interview during the second week of January (tentatively January 14th) and willing to commit to the full year of the program if selected.
