Become a Mentor

Apply to Become a Mentor

Become a Mentor for our Mentorship Program and play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the HERS Industry in Massachusetts! As a mentor, you'll have the opportunity to work closely with individual(s) who are matched with you based on demographics, interests, and location. This ensures that each participant entering the field receives personalized career guidance from seasoned professionals like yourself, in addition to the support they will already be receiving from our staff and their job placement/employer.

By sharing your institutional knowledge and expertise, you'll help aspiring RFIs, HERS Modelers and HERS Raters in the state of Massachusetts navigate their career paths with confidence. No teaching experience or preparation is required – just a passion for helping others succeed and a commitment to dedicating approximately one hour per week (more if you'd like!) for six months between September 2024 and March of 2025.

Responsibilities of mentors include meeting regularly with their mentee(s), providing guidance and mentorship, and communicating regularly with the NEHERS staff about how things are going and if you are aware of any additional support needed for each student. There will also be opportunities to be a "Guest Technical Expert" for some of the Zoom classes. Again, no preparation or lecturing is required, it's just about being available on a given day during the training class so that students have access to some of their mentors while going through the training.

Whether or not you're a resident of Massachusetts, if you have HERS Rater experience, we welcome your participation. Don't miss this chance to make a meaningful impact and inspire the next generation of industry leaders. Apply now to become a mentor!
