Become a Mentor!

The NCTFJ mentorship programme is designed to pair a suitable mentor with an NCTFJ mentee based on the analysis of a capacity needs assessment. In this relationship, the mentor will voluntarily assist in building the capacity of Community-Based Organization’s (CBOs) in the fields of business administration, communications and marketing, business planning, project management, agricultural techniques, protected areas management, environmental protection, ecotourism, and other areas that align with the needs identified by grantees.
Through the mentorship programme, CBOs will be able to better manage their organisations and be positioned to access and utilize grants for community-led projects. Mentors may include professionals from local businesses, schools, non-government organisations and other willing stakeholders.
