IT Mentoring Program

Develop and Retain Top Talent

The Cooperative IT Community Mentoring Program is designed to help IT professionals grow and expand in their role at the cooperative, and help organizations develop and retain top talent. An experienced mentor can help new employees get acclimated, decrease their learning curve, and build their national cooperative network. The program fosters collaboration and cooperation among cooperatives and exposes participants to new ideas and approaches in the organizational development and workforce development area.

Meetings are conducted virtually. Mentors and mentees are matched by needs, skills, and experiences.
