QLD YWP Mentoring Program 2021-22
The QLD Young Water Professionals (YWP) Mentoring Program is back by popular demand in 2021-22! Applications close 7 October 2021.
If you’re looking for guidance in managing your career then this is your chance to find the mentorship you need. Or if you’re keen to make a difference for an up-and-coming water professional while developing your coaching and leadership skills then we strongly encourage you to sign up as a mentor.
In this six-month program, you will be paired up with a mentor/mentee and be provided with some pointers throughout to help you get the most out of your relationship.
The Program will be facilitated by the QLD YWP Committee, however, your mentoring relationship over the Program period can be formal or informal and is based on openness, mutual trust, respect, encouragement, constructive comments, and a willingness to learn.
How can mentoring help me?
Mentoring is an important influence in professional development and constitutes a rewarding bilateral relationship. While mentees gain much needed guidance, encouragement and access to invaluable experience, mentors can benefit from learning new perspectives and developing leadership and communication skills. See
for more information on our previous mentoring programs and testimonies from previous Mentoring pairs.
Regional based water professionals are encouraged to submit applications for mentor and mentee roles. The launch event will be streamed online platform making the program accessible for all.
