Be a Mentor
You can be the link to business success for entrepreneurs in Nicaragua and beyond by sharing your skills and expertise as a volunteer business mentor.
Program Expectations & Requirements
Requirements: We are looking for volunteer business professionals who speak Spanish and who have 3 years of business ownership experience or 5 years of experience in business management or in a specialized skill (such as accounting or web marketing). We will offer you training and support throughout the mentoring process.
Location: We are recruiting mentors both locally in Nicaragua and abroad. In most cases, we expect much of the mentoring to happen over email, Skype, and/or the telephone. Travel or face-to-face meetings are not required, but are possible depending on what works best for both parties.
