NOVAA has teamed up with fellow do-gooder nonprofit groups to offer Oregon & SW Washington the first digital mentorship platform! 501MentorMatch, hosted by Willamette Valley Development Officers and powered by MercyCorps’ MicroMentor program, is a collaborative, one-of-a-kind effort in its pilot phase. Online “matches” between nonprofit mentees and mentors will offer nonprofit professionals an unparalleled mentorship opportunity during manageable 3-month sessions. 

Mentors are local, nonprofit professionals with at least 5 years of experience in their field and a wide range of experience. 
Anyone who is currently working for, actively volunteering, or playing an otherwise supportive role to a nonprofit can sign up to be a Mentee.
