Valleywise Health Foundation Announces Emerging Leaders Program

New program will give young professionals chance to work with executive mentors

Valleywise Health Foundation, formerly Maricopa Health Foundation, has announced the launch of its new community mentorship program. The program will pair ambitious diverse professionals under the age of 35 with established executives who are community influencers as their mentors.

Through workshops and mentoring sessions, mentees will uncover the purpose of philanthropy, develop their leadership skills, build lasting relationships with executives and community stakeholders, and be coached to have a purpose-driven mindset in their professions, charitable pursuits and personal lives. Each mentee will compete and create a community engagement project for the philanthropic pursuits of Valleywise Health Medical Hospital and will deliver their campaign strategy with their mentor before the Valleywise Health Foundation board. The most creative campaign will be financially supported by the Foundation.

At the end of the program, a few select mentees will be appointed for a junior board position with Valleywise Health Foundation.

Liz Agboola, CEO of Senior Placement Services and program chair, took the lead on developing the Emerging Leaders program and rolling it out to the community with the assistance of co-chairs Patti Gentry and Karen King.

The program is scheduled to begin first quarter of 2021 with 10 mentor and 40 mentee positions available. To nominate a mentor or mentee, visit ValleywiseLeaders.org.
