The Introduction to Mentoring course is a comprehensive and interactive three-hour training class that prepares volunteers for the mentoring experience by giving them the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to be successful during their time spent with their mentee. Our goal is for all mentors to have an enjoyable and rewarding experience both as a volunteer and a mentor.

  1. Understand the Role and Responsibilities as a Mentor
  2. Building a Relationship
