Young Worker Mentorship Call Out for Mentees!

Attention All members!

​OPSEU/SEFPO’s Provincial Young Workers Committee (PYC) is proud to present the first annual Young Worker Mentorship Program!  We are now seeking expressions of interest from potential mentees aged 35 and younger interested in participating in the 2022 program.

The Young Worker Mentorship Program will match Executive Board Members (EBMs) and Equity Committee/Caucus representatives with young workers to learn about OPSEU/SEFPO and develop them as leaders in Union life.

The six month program aims to establish a supportive mentoring culture and provide opportunities to connect individuals from diverse backgrounds and with different levels of experience from across the union. The program will also allow participants to build confidence with the hope of running for a leadership role in the future.

The program is very casual!  Virtual meetings, Coffee meet-ups, phone calls, etc., on your own time.  You may be invited to union meetings and events.

Duration:

July 31, 2022,  to January 31, 2023.

Selection Process:

Eight young workers aged 35 or younger will be selected to participate in the program as mentees.   Four will be paired with Executive Board Members, and four will be paired with Equity Committee/Caucus Reps.

Ideally, participants will be paired with EBMs or Equity Committee/Caucus Reps from their region.

To participate in the program you will need to submit an Expression of Interest to the PYC including your aspirations and why you should be selected for the mentorship. Indicate whether you would like to pair with an EBM or Equity Committee/Caucus Rep.

Please email your expression of interest with your name, local number and phone number to equity@opseu.org. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2022.

We look forward to welcoming you into the program! If you have any questions at all, please contact equity@opseu.org.

In Solidarity,

The OPSEU/SEFPO Provincial Young Workers Committee (PYC)
