The Mentoring Foundation

About This Project

Following a pilot in Taranaki BAF is now part of a national collaboration exploring the most effective platform to deliver mentoring for voluntary and community sector organisations.

This initiative is backed by The Tindall Foundation and is currently delivering community sector programmes in Taranaki, Bay of Plenty and Whanganui. We also have a sector specific initiative with the arts sector in Auckland. We are exploring further sector specific initiatives such as sport and recreation and potential partnerships with Iwi.

The Mentoring Foundation aims to strengthen the community sector by bringing mentoring to community sector leaders. Mentoring helps leaders become more effective, more confident and better-connected to a wider network.
