The Art of
Association Mentoring

Providing structured mentoring programs should be a core offering for any profession or industry association. A well-run program not only strengthens the industry as a whole by preparing a new generation of industry leaders, it also helps the association to attract and retain members. Associations are also uniquely placed to design fully funded mentoring programs.

Art of Mentoring specialises in designing mentoring programs for associations. In the last 5 years we have worked with associations such as Standards Australia, IPWEA, Australian Women in Resources Alliance, Australian Veterinary Association and more on programs with wide ranging objectives. We also assist in sourcing sponsorship funding for association programs.

At Art of Mentoring we believe mentoring enriches people’s lives and strengthens communities. The stronger an association’s sense of community; the stronger the

We combine evidence-based mentoring expertise with the latest technology to enable associations to develop and deliver high quality, cost effective mentoring programs. We are based in Australia, but we service clients around the world.

Mentoring Marketplace


Our plans are suitable for organizations that want a mentoring
program with high quality participant resources, online mentoring software and best practice in design. Plans range from providing basic support and structure to a fully managed program with sponsorship support.



Some organizations have large or complex groups or unique organizational goals that do not mesh well with our standardized plans. In these instances we can tailor a bespoke mentoring program that is specifically customised to your needs.

I brought Art of Mentoring on board at IPWEA to launch our mentoring program for young members. Learning from their experience we changed the way we approached our mentoring program which resulted in its ultimate success. I found their approach thoroughly professional and I really valued their expertise. We essentially outsourced the complete management of the program to Art of Mentoring greatly reducing any internal workload pressures on our small team. I highly value the contributions they made to the success of our program.

The Art of Mentoring team guided and supported a very complex integration of regional mentoring programs to one national program for up to 500 graduate vets. Their Mentoring Marketplace materials and Plans are excellent but most of all I appreciate the fantastic customer service we receive. I was new to Mentoring Program Management but I have felt supported every step of the way.

customers with the best possible assistance and solution for issues…
