Fusion Five Mentor Program
Our Pilot Mentorship Program will give members an exclusive ongoing opportunity to connect
with established community mentors to foster growth and connection at the personal and professional level.
We are excited to invite our members to join the first cohort of the Pilot Fusion Five Mentor Program!
This opportunity will provide Fusion Five members with direct and exclusive access to local mentors in our community who can help guide them towards their personal and professional goals. If you are interested in participating in this opportunity please download and review the resource guide.
Mentees will be paired in groups of three with community mentors from a variety of backgrounds. The program will kick off with a meet and greet at the end of June and will continue from July-October with a minimum of once a month group mentor meetings. We will end the program at the end of October with a closing reception.
There are 15 slots available for the pilot year and are first come first serve. Make sure you are prepared by:
- Ensuring you have reviewed the resource guide and FAQ thoroughly (Beneath the Form).

Frequently Asked Questions
For the pilot year the program will begin the last week of June with the Meet and Greet and end by the last week of October. Following years will run from April – October.
Mentees will complete an application form and a committee will use the information provided to determine the type of mentors our members wish to learn from. From there mentors will be selected and a committee will pair each mentor with no more than three mentees.
Other than the annual membership fee, and thanks to the generous support of Healthy Image, there are no additional program fees planned for the pilot year. Future years will be determined based on sponsorships.
Mentors and Mentees are responsible for any food, drink, or transportation costs associated with individual meetings and are not reimbursable by Fusion Five.
We understand that sometimes schedules will conflict, but this program is for your benefit so please try and attend all events and meetings. If a conflict does occur, reach out to your mentor and let them know as soon as possible.
The only requirement we have is that Mentors meet with their Mentees a minimum of once a month. The meetings can be at any time during the day and at any public and/or professional location as agreed upon between the Mentors and Mentees. Groups are more than welcome to meet more frequently if they wish. We would prefer meetings be in-person when possible, but do understand if virtual formats are required.
Unfortunately no, a committee will determine the matches, but we will use the information provided to us in your application to make the best match possible for both individuals and the mentors.
No. This is an opportunity for you to grow your knowledge and develop personally and professionally. Please do not attempt to sell or solicit your business or your product with your Mentor or your other mentees. Doing so may result in you being asked to leave the program.
