The International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF) will have an open period for applications two times per year. After the applications are received and reviewed, IAWF will match the mentors and mentees based on interests and geographic location. IAWF encourages both face to face mentoring and online remote mentoring, depending on the location of the participants. Both parties will need to mutually commit to six months. IAWF will provide resources, i.e. checklists, agreements, suggestions, etc.
Applications are now being accepted for the next mentoring cycle, which will run from May – October 2023.
