Learn more about the Tribal Mentors Network for new and existing EN participants!
Whether you're new to the Exchange Network (EN), or a long time participant with years of experience behind you, we invite you to join the EN Tribal Mentors Network. Through mentorships, those with more experience assist those with developing skills, thereby promoting collaboration and information sharing. Mentorship efforts aim to build tribal capacity and support networks to foster long-term sustainability of EN projects. The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) and the Tribal Governance Group (TGG) work closely with other EN stakeholders to identify appropriate mentor(s) on a case-by-case basis. ​
