Program Mentors & Coaches

Program Mentors are experienced Indigenous leaders and clean energy practitioners who possess deep familiarity with Indigenous culture, traditions, and values. Program Mentors will also support Catalysts before, during, and after the 20/20 Catalysts Program.

Program coaches provide one-on-one personal and professional development support to each Catalyst – helping them grow their leadership skills.
