YCL MENTORS

Mentoring is an essential aspect of our Network methodology

Starting during a Learning Journey participants have access to individual guidance via mentors to support their growth and ultimate transition to secure a climate career! It is a unique opportunity for the course participant to have the opportunity to discuss their career trajectory with an experienced professional, while the professional gains perspective from often younger mentees — fostering a mutually beneficial, bilateral exchange. 

Learn more about the incredible individuals that form the robust group of mentors supporting a comprehensive climate leadership ecosystem fueling climate actions and careers. Interested in becoming a mentor?
