Mentoring in Rural Communities: Traveling the Distance to Facilitate Your Program
Rural mentoring programs often face unique challenges that compound the everyday obstacles of facilitating an effective mentoring program. How can practitioners recruit and retain mentors when mentees live over an hour away? How can programs engage matches in activities when there aren’t easily accessible community events? Join Tina McGuinness of Gunnison Valley Mentors, Amanda Jamison of Heart of Oregon Corps, and Kimberly Briard of Take Stock In Children Palm Beach County as they discuss creative strategies to overcome these obstacles and engage their communities.
