The Alberta Mentoring Partnership’s Provincial Presentation on Mentoring Best Practices
Hold this date for an upcoming presentation!! Some of you will have seen Dr. Michael Karcher and Dr. Wayne Hammond at the joint Alberta Mentoring Partnership/Big Brothers Big Sisters conference in Edmonton in September 2010. We will be running three sessions in the province to further the work accomplished at the conference. The focus of these sessions will be on providing a theory base and developing practical ways caseworkers/teachers can apply strength based skills in their work. The sessions will be held in the following locations on the following dates:
–          The Lethbridge Lodge on March 8th
–          The Grand Prairie Inn on March 9th
–          Edmonton – The Coast on March 10th (This location is tentative) Please note, the Edmonton location will be videotaped and portions will be posted on the AMP website as a resource.
At each of these presentations, there will also be an opportunity to discuss and have input into the possibility of what shared services might look like to support mentoring throughout the province!
