ZONTA CLUB OF MID-MARYLAND
ZONTA International Mentoring Program
Zonta Internation is establishing a Mentoring Program for new members for each chapter. This is coordiated with committees and board members for each chapter throughout the United States.
The purpose of a mentoring program – Mentoring will help the new member to make the transition from being “newly installed” to being a vital part of the group. Mentoring is a learning partnership between an experienced club member (the mentor) and a newly inducted club member (the mentee) for the purpose of sharing knowledge and information about our great organization. More importantly, it strengthens your club. In order for an organization to thrive, it must have a process for regenerating itself from within itself. Mentoring is one process for doing just that.
