News Mentoring initiative helps prepare new leaders

Are you looking to become a leader in the human services field? Would you like to work towards your professional development goals with an accomplished mentor from a peer agency? Consider the Providers’ Council’s mentoring program, The Leadership Initiative.

The Council will host a free, members-only webinar, The Leadership Initiative Information Session, on Tuesday, February 26th at 2 p.m. to provide a closer look at and answer questions about the inter-agency mentoring program. The program pairs experienced executives with up-and-coming staff to grow the future leaders of the human services sector and to help address the leadership vacuum that will form as many baby boomers retire over the coming years.

In this session, you will learn about TLI program goals, such as:

  • Cultivating leadership skills;
  • Enhancing the professional development of future leaders of the human services sector;
  • Retaining the best talent within the sector; and
  • Creating a collaborative environment among member agencies that allows for the sharing of resources, ideas, and knowledge about the sector.

This program is open to employees of Providers’ Council member agencies. Mentees are employees with supervisory responsibilities that would like to grow within their organizations. Mentors are senior management level professionals who have knowledge and expertise to share with an emerging leader.

Mentees will be matched with mentors from an agency other than their own based on their professional development goals. Geography may also be factored in. Each mentor/mentee pair will meet regularly for a one-year period. This will include 60-minute meetings at least once a month, with at least six of the meetings occurring in person.

Register for the information session now. If you have any questions, please email Amanda McCarthy at or 617.428.3637 ext. 128.
