What – is the Online Mentee Training

The online training is a resource designed to introduce the concept of mentoring to children.

5 Modules:

The on-line training for Mentees provides an overview of some of the core concepts of being a Mentee and what it means to be a Mentee. Concepts covered include:

  • What is a Mentor? What is a Mentee?
  • Getting to Know your Mentor
  • Let’s Be Safe and have Good Boundaries
  • My Strengths
  • All About me

An adult mentor avatar guides children through the roles and characteristics of a mentor, examples of mentoring relationships, stages of a relationship, goal setting, match closure, child safety, boundaries, strengths, and a general description of mentoring programs. This tool is suitable for a variety of programs and organizations.

The tool highlights the importance of the mentee and mentor learning about each other. Children can build a story about themselves called ‘All About Me.’ This story includes information on the mentee’s favourite things, goals for the mentoring relationship, and personal strengths.
