Mentorship

The CoalitionWILD Global Mentorship Programme, in partnership with the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas, is building collaborative and cross generational relationships between emerging conservation leaders and veterans in the field. 

The Global Mentorship Programme offers young professionals access to the guidance, advice, and support they are searching for while giving seasoned conservationists the opportunity to guide and empower the next generation and gain new insights and energy into their work.

“The conservation community has a responsibility to help youth by inspiring those who have yet to care for nature, empowering young professionals already inspired to develop their capacities and networks, and by lending our time and experience as mentors — recognizing that youth have as much to teach as they have to learn.”
