Mentoring future Generous Leaders

  • Be their champion

    Big Idea Project mentors provide perspective, advice and connections to teams. Often, the best help a mentor can give is real-world advice and perspective that comes from well-crafted questions.

  • Mentoring for busy professionals

    Project-based mentoring has a hard start and stop date with a duration of about 3 months (a semester). Four in-class meetings are combined with weekly online communication.

  • Above all, it's about teaching empathy

    BIP mentors practice Generous Leadership® and know it is the key to building future leaders of impact. As a mentor you can guide students in an experience that leads to a paradigm shift characterized by empathy.

  • Impact education: be a resource

    Mentors are selected and directed by BIP educators. This means you have a real connection to teachers, our heroes on the frontline with tremendous influence over the development of our next generation.
