The Revised Online Orientation for Mentors is Now Available!
The revised AMP Online Mentor training is a one hour, online course that prepares a new volunteer to start their journey as a Mentor.
As a general practice, many mentoring programs require all of their volunteers who work with youth whether they are in one-on-one relationships or not through this training. It’s a great high-level orientation tool that can help you, again at no-fee! Learn more: https://albertamentors.ca/mentorship-training/
Over 10,000 Alberta mentors have been trained using this tool over the last 5 years. Now, the training has been refreshed and revised taking into account new developments in brain science and adolescent development and has integrated the feedback from front-line mentoring practitioners in schools and community agencies.
WHO SHOULD USE THIS TRAINING?
- Individuals interested in formal or informal mentors in individual, group, or school settings.
- Mentoring agencies to train or refresh mentors and manage expectations of new applicants
- Youth-serving organizations and schools interested in building leadership and relationship skills
- As a screening activity for individuals interested in evaluating if mentoring is right for them
This training pairs well with the online training program for mentees also available through the Alberta Mentoring Partnership.
