Women's Coaching Collective: Mentorship Program


This group facilitated, mentee-driven program is designed to further invest in the personal and professional development of women in the game. Whether you are a coach, administrator, staff, volunteer, or other, the Women's Coaching Collective Mentorship program focuses on advancing women in the sport and accelerating their development on or off the field through one-to-one mentoring, connections, relationships, and resources. 

A committee will review mentor & mentee interest and applications and make mentor-mentee pairs based on personal and professional goals, experience, and other relatable attributes. The application process is in place to make the best match possible and is not a gauge of whether or not you deserve or qualify to be a mentee. We believe anyone deserves the opportunity to be mentored at any stage. 

Program Expectations:
- Commit to the 8-month program which runs from September - April
- Mentor & Mentee Pair commit to meet at least once/month (in-person or virtual
- Attend group facilitate events and networking opportunities
- Maintain confidentiality regarding information that is shared

Apply today!

To express your interest and apply to be a mentor or mentee, complete the application forms below. The outcomes of this program are based on a great match between a mentor-mentee. Please take the time to complete the application thoroughly to ensure the best match. Acceptance into the program is based on mentor-mentee alignment. If for some reason we are unable to secure an appropriate match, we will communicate with you.

  • There is no career milestone moment required to be a mentor or mentee, other than a general level of experience. If you feel you have something to give, something to teach or share, and have an open-mind to learn from someone else, be a mentor! If you are a woman in the game who is looking to make connections, develop on or off the field in specific areas, advance your career, or invest in your own development, then be a mentee!

  • Mentees should be affiliated with NCFC Youth in some capacity - whether as a paid full time coach, volunteer coach, administrator, etc.

  • Mentors can be currently in the game (as a paid seasonal coach, staff coach, volunteer coach, administrator, etc.) at NCFC Youth or elsewhere, adjacent to the game in some other capacity (e.g., partner, league official, governing body, etc.) or formerly in the game as a coach, club leader, staff, or administrator.

  • Mentors and Mentees should both be active "members" of the Women's Coaching Collective by following our Facebook page.
