This new program brings together visionaries and change-makers across the country to support and inspire one another as part of a cohort, each discerning and initiating a project that puts faith into action for social justice. Each Young Leader will be paired with a mentor to accompany them as they explore how their Catholic faith and personal gifts and passions intersect with the social needs around them. Mentor Expectations: -Mentors must have prior experience and commitment to social justice, church reform and anti-oppression. Experience organizing and mobilizing Call To Action chapters or affiliated groups is a plus. -Mentors must become familiar with Call To Action’s existing leadership groups to be able to connect participants when necessary. CTA’s Leadership groups are the 20/30’s Group, the Anti-Racism Team, the development committee, CTA national staff, and the Vision Council. -Mentors ought to be creative, patient, and appreciate humor.
Mentor Commitments:-Mentors and Young Adult Leaders will meet at least monthly either in person or virtually.-Mentors will be available to provide further concentrated support when participant and mentor feel it is necessary. -Mentors will participate in video conference calls, facilitated by the Project Coordinator, at least every other month. -Mentors must commit to the full duration of the program May-Nov 2018.
