MSN Mentor Training
The mentor training class of September 2018

Making mentor training programs available to the community continues to be one of MSN’s primary activities. In late August/early September we offered our second training program for the year. Led by specialist Julie Fraser, the program is highly valued by all who participate.

Participants most recent comments included: “Confidence building” and “Identifying strengths and activities was great, will use that with my young people.”

All participants in the training program also receive a mentoring handbook. “The tools in the handbook will to keep my mentoring on track.”

Plans are already underway for 2019 when we expect to have two offerings of the popular training in the first few months of the year. If you are interested contact Paul Battle now (paul.battle@mentorsupportnetwork, to get your name on the 2019 waiting list. We will also be offering a specialized program early in the year with a focus on working with refugee youth to the mentors in our new pilot program. Costs are modest; $50 per day for members and $75 per day for non-members.

During the last few months we have received requests to offer our program for specialized groups of mentors. A couple have been local while others have been from rather distant parts of the country demonstrating the growth of interest in mentoring as a way of supporting our youth.

We are always happy to consider making such arrangements.
