Virtual Mentoring, Research, and Collaboration

Over the next few weeks, the Canadian Mentoring Partnership will be hosting a series of webinars exploring these big questions and inviting you to share your own best practices, and help provide to build capacity within the leaders across our country:
 
March 25th 2020 1:00 PM EST Building a Mentoring Movement Across Canada. In lieu of the Symposium, this will be a very high-level webinar into who we are, our collective impact strategy, our workplan, and ways for you to engage. (RSVP HERE)
 
April 8th 2020 1:00 PM EST Virtual Mentoring: Next, we will be hosting a special webinar on the topic of virtual mentoring. We are in high-level conversations with platforms and providers and we want to hear from you about your experiences, thoughts, hopes, and fears about alternative forms of mentoring. What are short, medium, and long-term adaptations we can use? The future is now. The common denominator in all of our work is relationships. We are about supporting caring relationships in person, online, over text, or other formats yet unexplored). (RSVP HERE)
                                        
April 22nd 2020 1:00 PM EST Growing the Canadian evidence base for quality mentoring is front of mind for us and our third webinar will be about research. This webinar will highlight some of our preliminary findings about young Canadians' access to mentors and experiences of mentoring. We will also share details about our ongoing research projects focused on youth, mentoring service providers, and mentors. (RSVP HERE)
 
May 6th 2020 1:00 PM EST Designing a national collaborative to lead the mentoring movement in Canada.  The goal for this session will be to gain input into the design of the CMP’s leadership table and communities of practice.  Together we will explore population-level outcome goals, potential theory of change, discuss who is already around the table, who do we need to engage and explore what could governance look like. (RSVP HERE)
 
While we had to postpone our next two Power of Mentoring events scheduled for Toronto and Ottawa, we were thrilled to work to bring together businesses and young people for a pilot in Edmonton, Alberta. It was an evening of energy and great learning, and once our communities are safe to host gatherings again, we look forward to scaling powerofmentoring.ca events across Canada. Please take a moment to watch this video and be inspired.
 
We look forward to engaging with you, and please reach out to myself or one of our team. Please keep sharing resources with us that we can amplify over our social media such as these from the Search Institute on supporting caring relationships during COVID19.
