Project Mentors and Skills Coaches

Save to Favorites



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

Benefits of volunteering with Umano:

  • Volunteer from home

  • Flexible hours

  • Direct interaction with changemakers around the world

  • Learn about important issues and innovative solutions to solving these issues

  • Utilize your skills and experience to make an impact in the world

  • Warm and empathic culture

  • Knowing that you’re making an impact in the world
