|This event is a call-out to graduates of the
BM1 Program to express your interest in
participating in ACC
Vancouver's Alpine Mentoring Program; a new
program available to ACC Vancouver Members
which will be rolled out
in Spring/Summer 2016.|
The goal of the ACC Vancouver Section Mentor
Program is to help aspiring climbers reach
their goals. We will
match mentee’s with experienced mentors to
allow them to reach their climbing goals for
the 2016 season. And in
doing such we will help to create the next
generation of leaders and trip coordinators in
the Vancouver Section.
Prospective Mentee’s will be asked to apply to
the program and include a list of their
previous climbs of
significance over the past 2 season. As well

season (May-Sept/Oct), mentors and mentee’s
will be expect to arrange
amongst themselves to spent 2 days per month
climbing and/or training together to work
towards developing the
building blocks to allow the mentee to achieve

ordinate two trips on
ical within a year of beginning the mentorship

After Jan 15, 2016 an

asking for the Mentee's goals and climbing
stream preferences will be sent
to all interested parties. This information
will then be used to match the mentees with a
