Emerging news product thinkers can apply for a virtual mentorship program.
News Product Alliance (NPA), in partnership with Google News Initiative, launched the Mentor Network. The program will increase the number and diversity of product professionals in the journalism industry by matching 150 emerging product thinkers with one of 50 experienced news product professionals.
Each mentee will participate in three one-hour sessions with a mentor to identify a challenge, work on the strategy and co-create an action plan.
Mentees will gain knowledge and increase their understanding of news product, become part of a global network of support, and more.
This six-month program runs October 2022 to April 2023.
Interested applicants must join the NPA Slack community before applying to the Mentor Network.
The application deadline is Sept. 26.
