Inspire & Grow Together
“The best teacher is not the one who knows most but the one who is most capable of reducing knowledge to that simple compound of the obvious and wonderful.” — H.L. Mencken
Few people can appreciate those words more than those who have been fortunate enough to experience mentorship first hand as they grow and learn from each other.
Emerge mentorship matches individuals who are looking to grow in a particular aspect of their careers with exemplary business professionals that are both committed to the community.
Mentees enter the relationship with a specific business challenge they would like input and support on. The mentor uses their experience to brainstorm ways to address the challenge with the mentee.
Emerge Mentorship promotes the professional and personal advancement of Victoria’s current and future leaders, creating authentic connections which support the growth of the mentor and mentee. Both the mentor and mentee must be members of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce to participate in the program.
- Develop a better understanding of your industry & community
- Have an experienced business professional provide insight on a key business challenge you are facing
- Grow both professionally & personally
- Share new ideas and perspectives
Please note we will be accepting applications for both mentees and mentors on a rolling basis throughout the year. Once an application is received, our team will review the application and determine if the candidate is suited for the program. We will then determine a suitable match, typically within a 4-6 week timeframe.
