Programs

NIDOA Calgary has a continual goal of aiding in the community’s self-improvement through mentorship, development, and educational programs. 

Below are some of the supportive programs that we offer our members:

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

One of NIDOA’s primary focuses is education – we offer mentoring programs to members in our network to connect individuals in business and trades to further the skills in our community.

As part of the mentorship program, you will be paired with a  mentor with the necessary skills and experience to help guide you to make strides in your career.

The Mentorship Program is ideal if you want to learn valuable skills from people who have excelled, want some guidance or another opinion in making decisions, need to build your confidence, or want to expand your network. When you sign up for the program, you can indicate any areas for which you would like mentorship, and we will match you with an appropriate mentor.

If you’re interested in joining the Mentorship Program as a Mentor or Mentee, please fill out the following form.

STUDENTS

NIDOA Calgary is not just open to full-time working professionals – we also highly value students. As a result, NIDOA Calgary also offers discounts for membership and  events for full-time students. 

We know that having access to practical education and an impactful network can give students an upper hand when they are looking to enter the workforce full-time, and can set them up to start their careers with a bang.

All programs available to members are also be available to student members who choose to participate; however, a student-specific version of the program will be provided. In addition to partaking in programs, events, and other activities of the organization, special volunteer opportunities also exist for students.
