Our program connects interested participants with experienced professionals, to support and advance their careers in urban forestry. This connection creates a mutually beneficial relationship where the mentee has the opportunity to ask questions, gain exposure to career opportunities in urban forestry, and develop a professional network, while the mentor provides guidance, shares advice, and supports the next generation of urban forestry leaders. OUFC reviews all applications and pairs participants based on goals, interests, and objectives to ensure a successful and supportive relationship.
Applications are accepted year-round. For more information or to sign up as a mentee/mentor, click here. Mentors are required to be an experienced urban forestry professional, and must be willing to share experiences, provide guidance, and be available for one-on-one meetings with their mentee.
