Overview of Club Mentoring Program

RACV Club is proud to offer Members complimentary access to an exclusive Mentoring Program.  

 

Designed for Club Members who are looking to invest in their professional and personal growth, the Mentoring Program matches like-minded Club Members through a structured 16-week program, designed for both Mentees and Mentors to share knowledge, insights and experiences to further advance their careers. 

 

What can you expect as a Mentee? 

Mentees determine their own success and enjoyment throughout the program, as it is their development that will be the focus. The program is designed for the mentee to take advantage of being paired with an experienced Club Member who acts as a mentor, to develop and learn through a shared experience.

 

Mentees are required to manage the relationship with their mentor, including planning meetings, setting agendas and ensuring the best use of the allocated time and available resources.

 

What can you expect as a Mentor? 

Mentors are professionally paired with a mentee to provide guidance, support, practical understanding and feedback. Whilst the focus of the program is largely on the mentee and their development, mentors play an essential and fulfilling role in the overall success of the program. To be a part of the program, you don’t need to have mentored before. The prerequisite is that you have professional experience and are comfortable sharing your learnings with a fellow Club Member.

When did the RACV Club Mentoring Program start and why?

The Mentoring Program started in 2018. RACV Club is very fortunate to have a diverse Member base, with many experienced Members from a vast array of industries as well as those who are early into their career or looking for a change. As an extension of the strong Club community, the Mentoring Program was born to share experiences between Members in a structured and professional way.

What are the benefits of being a part of the Club Mentoring Program? 

The Club Mentoring Program gives fellow Club Members the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals through a structured mentee and mentor professional and personal development program. 

 

Mentees and mentors are professionally matched based on the skills and needs identified through an expression of interest process. The program is run over 16-weeks and includes a celebration reception at the conclusion of the program. 

How is the program run? 

The Club Mentoring Program is overseen and supported by Michael James. Michael is an Executive Coach, Leadership Consultant and Public Speaker that runs his own business, EvolveXP. With over 25 years of professional development coaching, Michael alongside the RACV Club Events team, will provide the structure and platforms for mentees and mentors to make the most out of the mentoring program. 

How many intakes do you have and how long does each intake run for? 

There are 4 intakes per year for the Club Mentoring Program:

 

  • March – Groups 1 and 2
  • July – Group 3
  • September – Group 4

 

Each intake runs for approximately 16 weeks and the program is supported by a structured timeline designed for mentee and mentor pairs to meet approximately 7-8 times during the program.  

 

All successful mentees and mentors are required to attend the compulsory program initiation meeting and final session. An example program will be provided upon registering your interest.

Is there a cost involved to be a part of the program?

All mentees and mentors are encouraged to use the Club facilities and enjoy Member benefits to organise their meetings, including complimentary access to the Shared Workspace located on Level 1 and 2 of the City Club. There are also discounts on all food and beverages at Bourke Street Green with 10% off when you pay by cash or card, or 15% off when you charge direct to your Club account.  

How are mentees and mentors matched? 

Upon registering your interest for the RACV Club Mentoring Program, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire outlining your professional background, skills and what you would like to achieve out of the program. 

 

The Mentoring Program will endeavour to match each mentee and mentor pairing appropriately so you can get the best out of the program.   

What happens if I do not get matched in an intake?

Not all Club Members who apply for the Mentoring Program get matched for the immediate intake. Those not matched for a particular intake are the first to be considered for the next intake. Applications remain active until the Member is matched or advises the Club they wish to withdraw their application.
