Do you have time for a coffee once a month? Are you looking for a way you can make a positive contribution to the leadership journey of someone else?

1. Let us know you are interested by emailing

2. Complete our expression of interest form.  This information will assist us to match you with your mentee if you meet the neccesary requirements.

Mentoring provides a unique opportunity for both the mentor and mentee to engage, learn and be challenged by perspectives, experiences and expertise that are different to their own. In doing so, both mentors and mentees can strengthen their leadership skills and capability.

Leadership Victoria offers a range of mentoring and volunteering opportunities that complement other program activities (such as leadership development programs, speaking opportunities, networking, workshops and coaching), as well as a stand-alone program.

As a mentor with us you have the opportunity to:

  • strengthen your own leadership capabilities;
  • reflect and improve your mentoring practice;
  • gain both personal and professional satisfaction from developing others;
  • build the leadership skills and capacity of individuals and organisations;
  • be exposed to new ideas, perspectives and cultures; and,
  • give back to the community.

We are currently seeking mentors for a variety of programs, including:

Women's Board Leadership Program (Series 2 - 17 July - 11 December): Mentor female leaders who are striving to develop their governance/board leadership skills.

New and Emerging Communities Leadership Program (Ballarat) (27 July – 20 October): Mentor refugees, migrants and community leaders from new and emerging communities in the Ballarat region to build their leadership capabilities and networks.
