What You’ve Always Wanted to Learn About Mentoring
3 sessions, 6 hours
There’s lots of great information about the benefits of mentoring. Maybe you’ve been wondering about how it actually works and whether you could and should be a mentor. In this class we’ll use exercises and group discussions to explore what the role of a mentor is with a mentee and within the community, characteristics of good mentors, who mentees are and what they’re looking for, and what you personally bring to a mentoring relationship. This course is meant to help connect residents, especially retired residents, to mentoring and volunteering opportunities within the Frederick County community. It is made possible by a generous donation from the Shirley Cruickshank Wolfe Fund which provides program support to the ILR Program. ILR is excited to bring you this course which will be the first of a series of offerings about mentoring and volunteering in local communities.
