A mentor is a person who shares his or her knowledge and expertise with one or more people who have less experience. Mentoring a new Toastmasters club is similar in many ways to mentoring a single person. Mentors are the advisors and tutors for new clubs and have a great effect on the degree to which a new club succeeds.
New clubs are not the only beneficiaries of the mentoring relationship. Mentoring allows you to:
Up to two new club mentors are appointed by district directors or club growth directors. The mentors’ names and member numbers should appear on the prospective club’s Application to Organize. Alternately, district directors or club growth directors can submit mentors’ names by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 60 days from the charter date. Mentors and a charter officer sign and return the Get Credit form to World Headquarters after mentors have completed six months of service.
