Dear Columbia Laidlaw Scholar community,
I am thrilled to share an incredible new opportunity to further your leadership development – the Mentora Youth Changemaker Fellowship is set to launch on Columbia’s campus this March!
Here at Mentora, we believe in an ‘inside out’ approach. For 15 years we’ve successfully coached leaders to master their thoughts, reactions, and daily actions, delivering this as a proven model for character and leadership development which has amplified the Outer Impact of C-suite executives and college students alike.
This year, we’re taking the sought-after leadership training that our Faculty deliver on the MBA program at Columbia Business School and offering it philanthropically to emerging leaders on campuses across the US and UK, starting with Columbia.
As a Youth Changemaker Fellow, you’d join a diverse cohort of emerging leaders committed to driving positive change in the world, starting with themselves. You'd embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and communal practice in a shared learning journey which will leave you with connections and friends for life.
As a philanthropic program, we are pleased to offer our Fellowship and all its benefits to you free of charge and we estimate your time commitment to be just 6-7 hours per month.
What's in it for you?
- Bi-weekly guided learning sessions with members of your chapter: Absorb our leadership curriculum in bitesize chunks and practice our leadership ‘actions’ in scenario-based exercises.
- Access to a range of exclusive leadership development tools and resources: Boost your performance when it really matters with our AI-backed leadership coaching tool, LiFT.
- Eligibility to apply for the global annual retreat and Changemaker Conference: Network, connect, and grow with our expanding global cohort of Changemakers from around the world.
- Leadership credentials from a respected brand in leadership development: Enhance your employability by adding your Mentora Fellowship to your resume and LinkedIn profile.
Finally, as the Program Manager, an alumnus of the pilot of this fellowship, and a former Laidlaw Scholar myself, I sincerely hope that as many of you join as possible. This fellowship has been a truly transformational experience for me and for many of my friends who I met on the program, and I look forward to playing my role in giving you an even better experience as we launch at Columbia this March.
