An important yet neglected area of focus for many mentoring programs is the process of preparing mentees (and their families) for the match. When staff provides effective preparation and training, it can promote safety, teach important relational skills, and bolster parental involvement. Initial mentee trainings can also be used to create a sense of camaraderie, and to inspire mentees to follow through with their commitments. Join mentoring experts Dustianne North, Ph.D., M.S.W. and Jerry Sherk, M.A. of the California Mentoring Partnership for this important webinar. Dr. Sarah Schwarz, Assistant Professor at Suffolk University in Boston, will offer further insights from her recent studies.Register Now
