Project Mentors and Skills Coaches
Umano’s mission is to support initiatives that foster holistic empathy for humans, animals, and the environment. We achieve our mission by providing funding and training to help changemakers build holistically empathic initiatives that are financially resilient and impactful.
We are building our team of volunteer Project Mentors and Skills Coaches, who will provide guidance to the initiatives that we support, using our RISE framework to help the project increase their reach, measure their impact, build financial resiliency, and incorporate empathy-building into their programs. Project Mentors provide more broad-based strategic support, while Skills Coaches are subject-matter experts (such as social media advice). You can see the projects we currently work with on our website, but we we're just getting started!
Volunteers will be matched with projects based on interests and skills needed, and communication with project leaders will be done online over Zoom and email.
What you bring to the team:
Experience in strategic planning, managing projects, and mentorship
Ability to communicate concepts in easy to understand language
Strength in empathizing with the challenges faced by social entrepreneurs
Ability to maintain boundaries and focus on encouragement and guidance
Sensitivity to cultural and geographical differences
Ability to attend pre-scheduled online meetings with matched project leaders
Ability to commit to up to 5 hours of mentorship per month, with a minimum commitment of 1 year
Belief in the importance of empathy for humans, animals and the environment
