Peer Mentoring

Peer Mentoring

AFP GLAC is a welcoming community of fundraisers and our true strength is in the thousands of one-to-one relationships formed by AFP members. Are you looking for one-on-one guidance and support from a seasoned development professional?  Or are you a seasoned professional who wants to give back to the Greater Los Angeles philanthropic community by helping to ensure that non-profit organizations have the best fundraisers?

The Peer Mentoring Program is one of the most important programs AFP GLAC offers. This members-only benefit provides individualized training to advance the skills of those newer to the profession, transitioning to a new area of the field or looking for opportunities to grow in their fundraising career. For both mentors and protégés, this is an exceptional opportunity to share expertise, network with and learn from colleagues, and, ultimately, ensure the strength of Greater Los Angeles’s philanthropic community.

For mentors, the program enhances leadership abilities, fosters collegial relationships and provides additional networking opportunities with regional colleagues.
