The Community Mentors programme is designed specifically for community organisations, not for profits, social enterprises and both registered and un-registered charities. The aim of the programme is to strengthen knowledge of sound business practices at a management and Board level. Community Mentors are experienced, successful New Zealand business people who know what it feels like to either govern, manage or operate a not for profit or social enterprise. They also have extensive commercial business experience which will also add value to any not for profit or charitable organisation.
