Community Connect: Mentors Inspiring Success
Capturing the wealth of knowledge in our community and cultivating our community's leaders are important to perpetuating the strength and uniqueness of Greater Des Moines. Community Connect: Mentors Inspiring Success sustains and expands leadership throughout the region by inspiring future leaders and givers through self-discovery and meaningful mentoring connections. The program has two key objectives:
The five-session program occurs in a small-group setting, which ensures interaction with each mentor as well as other program participants. In addition, participants are encouraged to meet with the mentors and small groups between sessions to fully benefit from their experience.
Application and Timeline
Applications for the 2018 program will be accepted October 9 - November 6. There will be an information session on October 23, 2017 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Greater Des Moines Partnership. There is no cost to attend the information session but we ask that you pre-register. The class size is intentionally small to ensure meaningful learning and connections with mentors and participants.
Community Connect 2018 Session Dates*
*Two additional dates have been added as small group meeting dates. We ask participants to reserve the evening of February 26 and April 2 to meet with small groups.
We are working hard to secure our mentors for 2018. A big Thank You to the mentors who participated in the 2017 Community Connect program.
