PODER’s mentorship program has been designed to stop perpetuating the standard free-labor internship model so as to, instead, foster co-learning opportunities for those interested in voluntarily collaborating with our organization.
To participate in this program, candidates must complete the application form below and include their CV and a letter of interest. We will then circulate the application among our team members and, if someone is interested in mentoring the candidate, we will contact him/her to conduct an interview.
Being a mentor means that a PODER team member commits to accompanying the mentee during his/her time with PODER and promoting skills development and knowledge acquisition according to an established work plan.
PODER commits to supporting candidates with basic items such as public transportation cards and/or per diems. Additionally, if candidates come from outside Mexico City, PODER will assist their search for lodging and other logistical arrangements upon arrival.
