Closure or termination is a normal stage in the life of a mentoring relationship.  With agency support and proper notice of the timing and reasons for closure, mentees and other members of the match may fare better in coping with the loss of the mentoring relationship.  Join us in March to discuss best practices as it relates to:

  • Identifying natural emotions, such as grief, denial, and resentment that may arise as mentor/mentee relationships come to a close
  • Providing options for saying goodbye in a healthy, respectful, and affirming way
  • Addressing appropriate situations for staying in touch with your mentee

Come ready to discuss the policies you have in place and how you may incorporate those closing policies throughout the lifecycle of the mentoring relationship.
