The Regional Hispanic Institute (RHI) is a non-profit organization devoted to the achievement and success of young leaders. We seek to advance future generations of professionals, corporate executives, and community innovators. Our focus is on making stronger connections and linking young leaders in a wide-variety of business industries.
We would like to expand your interest of being a mentor for the Lideres Mentorship Program. This program pairs mentors with college students (mentees), to aid in their college careers with questions that they have regarding working in a variety of industries, evaluating their resumes, assisting them with interview questions, and connecting mentees with paid internships or jobs with your industry.
Mentors are requested to have at least five years of management experience and must have demonstrated success in their respective industries. It is helpful to have participated in various levels of upper management, including: Managers, Directors, Vice Presidents, CEO’s, CFO’s, COO’s, or Presidents. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to mentor as well.
Mentors and Mentees are required to come to the Matchmaking initial meeting where we will host an interactive event where you will get to know each other before we pair you up. The day of, we will provide you a form that allows you to input your top three mentees. This is done so we can facilitate who we pair you up with.
Through the course of this year’s program, you will have to meet at least once through video chat, once in person, connect via LinkedIn, and lastly, at the graduation during the Mujeres del Año awards ceremony.
Your participation is greatly appreciated,
Lideres Mentorship Committee
