The Mentorship Network

The Mentorship Network supports First Nation to First Nation learning and mentor and mentee relationships in order to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience between communities across the province. The Mentorship Network’s aim is to provide learning, training and networking opportunities for band administrators, elected leaders, community planning champions and other First Nation workers to support and learn from one another.

Resource Sharing

Coming soon!

Training

FNPSS integrates mentoring and networking into all aspects of training we deliver, whether at conferences, through cohorts, or follow-up coaching.

Webinars

FNPSS regularly hosts webinars that feature speakers on topics of current interest and relevance to BC First Nations administrators and leaders. These online sessions are based on First Nation to First Nation learning and are a key element of the FNPSS Mentorship Network.

Coaching Circles

Coaching Circles provide opportunities for administrators, elected leaders and community planners to gather virtually as communities of practice on a regular basis to learn and share in an informal group setting.

To join a future coaching circle or to find out more information, contact mentorship@fnps.ca. Watch the Events Calendar for notifications of upcoming Circles.

Networking

The First Nations Administrators Network Facebook Group is an online group of people working in and/or supporting administration in BC First Nations. It is a great place to post questions and resources and learn about upcoming opportunities of interest.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee, would like to propose a topic or speaker for a webinar or training, or would like additional information on the Mentorship Network, please contact mentorship@fnps.ca.
