The New Media Mentors Digital Academy is a program designed to address the needs of organizations with varying budgets, experience and capacity. The Academy covers the most important aspects of successful digital campaigns, based on our experience in the field.

The program is based on the principle that using new media such as email, social media and social action technology effectively is key to an organization’s success both on and offline. New Media Mentors' “learning by doing” model insures the adoption of new knowledge and skills.

The Academy is comprised of three one hour courses. Each course includes:

  • Three live interactive group webinar workshops.
  • Three additional 1 on 1 one hour mentoring sessions.
  • Downloadable worksheets and templates.

Group Workshops

Each Digital Academy course includes three interactive 60-minute group workshops. Group workshops are scheduled for specific dates, but recordings will be made available to students who aren't able to make it to the live session(s).

1:1 Mentoring

Each course includes three 50-minute 1:1 sessions with a mentor. This is an opportunity to connect with a mentor via video chat and get feedback, ask questions, etc. We recommend that students schedule their 1:1 sessions within a few days of the group sessions (and before the next group session).

Downloadable Tools

Each course includes downloadable tools designed to make it easier for students to implement what they've learned.
