Mentorship Program

To ensure success, you should have the support and guidance of someone who has been there and understands what you will go through on your path to success

Mentorship is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development, enabling you to achieve desired success – and meet some great people along the way.

What is mentorship?

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more knowledgeable or experienced person guides and nurtures the professional and personal development of another. Mentorship benefits all parties; Mentors will improve interpersonal skills, strengthen subject matter knowledge, and expand their network. For Mentees, it can help clarify career goals, provide practical advice and encouragement, and shed light on the perspective and knowledge of someone who has faced similar challenges. Overall, mentorship can be used as a tool to increase diversity and inclusion in the aviation industry.

Elevate Aviation strives to foster a safe and collaborative community for our mentorship program members to experience successful mentoring relationships. We do this by ensuring every member signs an agreement that affirms their commitment to the program and confidentiality. Additionally, we provide training on how to be a good mentor/mentee. Our Mentor Lead volunteers are experienced mentors and aviation professionals who complete regular check-ins with each program member to ensure they are satisfied and attain feedback so the program can be continuously improved.
