Recruitment now open for NBCC OASIS mentorship program
NBCC’s OASIS program is accepting applications for its fall session in Moncton. Different from other mentorship programs in both delivery and scope, OASIS is an innovative program where entrepreneurs can find a home. The program matches small business owners with experienced mentors all through a unique, structured, and multi-leveled mentorship process.
OASIS is a community mentorship program offered to small business owners allowing them to work ‘on’ their business while working ‘in’ their business. There are professional development sessions that run throughout the 12 weeks, but the mentorship meetings with assigned mentors are coordinated by participants around their schedules.
The only cost to the small business owner is their investment of time. You will meet with your mentor and attend professional development sessions totaling 10-12 hours over 12 weeks.
The program’s success is based on tactical mentorship activities, professional development
OASIS also boasts a 97% satisfaction rate amongst our participants. And now we’re excited to watch this program grow in a new area. We are recruiting for both OASIS mentees and mentors. OASIS is open to small business owners currently in need of support and guidance to reach their business goals. We are also seeking mentors who want to support these owners.
