Train the Trainer: Mentoring 101
- Family & Education
- The Science Museum of Virginia, Richmond VA
This is an open training session where volunteers will learn what to expect in the mentor-mentee relationship and volunteering in school, community, or site-based programs. Session participants will be introduced to the definition of mentoring and the boundaries of a mentoring relationship. Using the Positive Youth Development approach, trainers will lead volunteers through discussion and activity to generate ideas for fostering positive developmental assets in their mentees.
The session is appropriate for new and experienced mentors or volunteers.
Virginia Mentoring Partnerships' mission is to provide educational services to existing and developing mentoring programs to increase the number and quality of mentoring relationships for children and youth in the state of Virginia.
