Mentoring Program

The PMYNYC Mentoring Program provides mentoring opportunities for members of the NYC chapter of PMI. This program aims to improve individual project management professionalism in line with PMINYC Chapter goals.

This program enables chapter members to share experiences and develop project management skills for the benefit of their own professional development objectives. Mentors and mentees are paired based on areas of interest, time allowances, and other similarities. Participation in the Mentoring Program is a rewarding experience which will further establish your part in our professional social network community.

The PMINYC Mentoring Program provides a one-on-one format for mentors and mentees to spend individualized time sharing ideas, challenges and perspectives on specific areas of project management. The value partners gain in mentoring depends largely on the partners' goals and their professional relationship. Participants may find that their involvement in the program helps to solve complex problems within the work environment, advance career paths, or grow business.

This voluntary program is governed by formal guidelines and goals designed to provide structure to the mentor/mentee relationship. These guidelines also determine the completion of the pairing objectives.



“My mentor, sharing his experiences with real life stories, helped shape my thinking and allowed me to look at things from a different perspective. I'm happy to say he has pushed me, challenged me, supported me and without knowing, motivated me to go after what I want, even if it is the unknown.” Shatisha - Mentoring Program participant
