On behalf of Maureen Hilyard, ALAC Chair, this is a call for nominations to serve as the ALAC/At-Large NextGen Mentor for a one year term of three ICANN Meetings starting with ICANN73.
The most important aspect of the program for NextGen is the opportunity to improve their knowledge and careers. The main role of a NextGen mentor is to support their NextGen mentees and help them learn about the NextGen at ICANN Program and ICANN in general, keeping in mind their interests, backgrounds, prior knowledge, and experiences. The goal is to prepare each NextGen to engage in an ICANN meeting, even if at most basic level, and to create a team bond and support system.
A time commitment of approximately 24 hours each round is expected, including extensive pre-meeting preparation and on-site support for their assigned NextGen mentees. Mentors spend about 10 hours per week during the 6-week preparation period in advance of the meeting and about two hours per day providing on-site support at the ICANN meeting. Mentors will typically serve for one year, or three meetings. Mentors are expected to follow NextGen at ICANN Program<https://www.icann.org/public-responsibility-support/nextgen> guidelines to help ensure consistency in capacity development opportunities. Mentors will receive travel funding support to ICANN meetings.
Guidelines for the program can be found here [r20.rs6.net]<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001EeJc3LNNaX8AL3oFM18HAs0SqkGR_cizaBxVEmTEVrohl7fK2PhPtKQo3_TJh_cWuYDMRfKgwySK5p2VK2rtMA58wBTQ1Pf0CZMOcbvA5XPbRa9nMTmU0h8e_h_Pcmg_3T-q-kuwQi-Iji0E0NeVGupzGJH7zKstXb2mPnTQauSu6eJeDzTM8cKAFVljPKrtX2EADlMjbeUQ6POPQ6KUy7uPqJLhjTakIb9d5fQQ4L1HIbeKe9fXig==&c=8k_1PCFEZ2C2NxEXDNAZskwq3OYpQbv50FyDtXY7qB1MauAucdDN1w==&ch=4qCFW_KEDkNLOdmHK76fOCjTYVZ0F5SuweinWw5Qx1NvF4mKqNNmmg==__;!!PtGJab4!qNdq8k1yUBH-U-yqVlTtQNHqTA_WI2c1Y6xX1IM9rTNEVNmLtjswDQ3PkG8O1CZgCpigMP09$>.
