Get Involved - Become a Mentor

Two beekeepers helping each other inspect hives.

Lots of new and experienced beekeepers are looking for help.

While we've been able to accommodate requests for mentorship on an availability basis, there are always many more mentees than available mentors. In response, we've made some changes to our Mentorship Program to make it more attractive and productive for experienced and patient beekeepers to volunteer as Mentors.

Let's work with each other to become better beekeepers!

Benefits of Being a CBA Beekeeping Mentor

A primary enhancement to the program is allowing mentors once a year the opportunity to choose from among a number of free benefits. The benefits available will depend on a mentor’s responsiveness to mentees, the number of mentees they have, their effectiveness as a mentor, and our available resources. We are pleased to announce that current benefits include a mated queen, use of the extractor, vendor credits, and Amazon gift cards (when available).
