Ascend Mentorship Program
Introducing NGPA’s Ascend Mentorship Program
For over 30 years NGPA has worked to Build, Support, and Unite the LGBTQ+ aviation community worldwide and we are proud to offer a mentorship program to our members to continue that mission. The Ascend Mentorship Program is designed to support the next generation of LGBTQ aviation professionals and community leaders.
What are the goals of Ascend Mentorship Program?
The Ascend Mentorship Program aims to:
-Help LGBTQ+ people in aviation achieve personal growth and reach their professional goals
-Create opportunities for new members to build relationships and connections within the organization and in their career field by encouraging engagement with fellow NGPA members.
-Build a culture of mentorship and make mentorship an everyday activity that we practice throughout NGPA.
Who is the program for?
Any member of NGPA can sign up for a mentor. The program is targeted at new members of NGPA, students, people new to aviation as a hobby or career, and anyone looking to better connect with our LGBTQ aviation community.
How are mentor and participant (mentee) pairs matched?
We draw on the experience, location, and other biographical information of a mentor and participant to make a match. Ultimately our goal is to see what the participant in the programs wants from a mentor and try to find someone who meets that ask.
How do I become a mentor?
If you are interested in volunteering as a mentor, you must be a current member of NGPA. You can submit an application to be a mentor using the button below. We will notify you if you’ve been accepted into the program.
