What is Organizational Mentorship and who does CEE mentor?

Organizational Mentorship is a key component of CEE’s Organizational Development Program, focused on fostering the longevity and impact of B3 organizations within Black communities in Canada. The groups that reach out to us have different strengths and community-specific considerations that must be accounted for in heir service delivery. As a result, CEE provides individualized mentorship, curated tools, and collaborative learning opportunities, creating a foundation for growth. Ultimately, the Organizational Mentorship stream seeks to build a strong and sustainable national community of B3 organizations, empowering them to lead and maximize their impact in Black communities.

Interested organizations can apply to join this transformative program.

CEE’s Organizational Mentorship Approval Process

Vetting of application

Once your application is received, the Organizational Development Team will screen it for due diligence and ensure there is alignment with our mission and values. We may take up to 2 weeks from confirmation of receipt to complete our review.


All applicants will be notified of the results of our review. Successful applicants will be invited to a virtual interview with the Organizational Development Lead to explore the potential of a working relationship. Unsuccessful applicants can be provided feedback upon request.

Final results

The Organizational Development Team will do a final screening for conflicts of interest and communicate a final decision regarding mentorship.
