PMI Vancouver Island Chapter

Mentorship Program


The Mentorship Program is a volunteer-based engagement between someone who has project management experience and knowledge and is willing to share it (the mentor), with someone that is interested in learning more about one, or more aspects of project management (the protégé).

This program is sponsored by the PMI Vancouver Island Chapter and is available to anyone who is a PMI Vancouver Island Chapter member. There are no additional fees required to partake in the program.

The 2019/2020 program will run from early February to mid June

What Great Mentors Look Like

There are three categories of an effective mentor:

  • Personal relations: friendly, open, keeps discussions confidential
  • Professional experience: ability and expertise in their field of work
  • Communication: flexible delivery style, clear yet comprehensive

Receiving encouragement, advice and feeling heard are other qualities described by protégés about their best mentors. We can see the elements of a great mentor look a lot like those we look for in a great leader.
