Do you want to volunteer as a mentor? Are you already volunteering as a mentor but not exactly sure how or what to do? Volunteer Starkville is hosting a community mentor training on Thursday, August 31, 2017 from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM at the Greater Starkville Development Partnership Board Room (3rd Floor). This mentor training will feature several local mentor experts that will cover a wide range of mentoring topics. Once you have participated in this training, you should have the knowledge and resources to go forward, volunteer as a mentor, and achieve a successful relationship with your mentee!
The mentor training will cover the following topics:
• Need for Mentors in Our Community
• Role of a Mentor
• Why Youth Need Mentors
• Challenges of Mentoring
• Benefits of a Mentorship
• 10 Principles of Effective Mentoring
• Establishing Trust & a Relationship with Your Mentee
• Bullying: Awareness to Action
Each training participant will receive a Starkville Community Mentor Guidebook as well as dinner! Also, each participant will complete a Mentor Interest Sheet so Volunteer Starkville can match you with a nonprofit in need of mentors that best align with your interests!
To register for the mentor training, email Kauthar Gaber at Kauthar@volunteerstarkville.org.
