One-Day Coordinator’s Training

Cost: $75/Free for National Mentoring Resource Center eligible programs
This is a full-day interactive training designed to help:
• New program coordinators get a viable youth mentoring program up and running.
• Professionals returning to the mentoring field and agency directors who are considering offering a mentoring program through their school or agency.
• Existing coordinators who want to revamp their current programs.

Using the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring (EEPM), the industry’s nationally accepted best practices, MENTOR Rhode Island’s training staff will take participants through the processes needed to recruit mentors, achieve community buy-in, screen and train mentors, match volunteers and youth in meaningful and fulfilling mentoring relationships, and discuss issues facing youth today.
Attendees receive a copy of the “How to Organize a Community Mentoring Program” training manual which includes all the lessons covered during the training. In addition, they will receive a “Mentor Training” manual as well as access to various forms and samples that can be tailored to individual mentoring programs. It also is the first step to the Assessment & Improvement process called, National Quality Mentoring System (NQMS) AND this training gives participants a chance to network with each other!
