Supporting volunteers to effectively mentor young people begins with initial and on-going training. To support organizations in providing quality, standardized training, AMP has developed an online orientation program for mentors. It is most beneficial if mentors participate in these pieces of training before they are matched. Additional in-person and/or program-specific training may be required. This training provides a foundation of knowledge that you can build upon.
What You Will Learn
The orientation introduces mentors to the core concepts of mentoring and what it means to be a mentor.
The program includes 5 modules and a check for understanding:
- The basics of mentoring
- The importance of mentoring
- The role of the mentor
- The support you can expect from your mentoring program
- Introduction to the dynamics of building a positive mentoring relationship
