Come prepared to share your stories & experience with other mentoring professionals as you design a training that will enforce your organizational & program values, control risk and teach the knowledge, skills & attitudes necessary for your volunteers to develop highly effective and deeply committed mentoring relationships. Includes key topics to cover in any training for new mentors and tips for teaching adult learners. All participants will leave with a valuable training guide, including suggested agendas, instructions for activities to use during mentor training and other resources.
