Mentee Training

Mentoring is a two-way relationship – both mentors AND mentees play a crucial role in the success of the match.  Mentee training teaches mentees about mentoring, what their responsibilities will be in the mentoring relationship, and what they can expect from their mentor in return. This training is flexible depending on the program’s goals, the type of program, and the age of the mentees.

Making the Most of Mentoring

This new training is designed to provide middle and high school students with the tools to clarify goals, consider how others could support their goals, assess their network of connections and reach out for help.  In the end, we hope young people walk away more confident in who they are, more focused on what they want to achieve and more skilled at seeking the right support.  This training is available at program sites for mentors and mentees together or for mentees only.  It is ideally suited for programs looking for a closure activity to help youth transition from formal to informal mentors.  It also works well for group mentoring programs that focus on career exploration with their youth.
