What You’ve Always Wanted to Learn About Mentoring

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.

  1. I probably cannot attend all three of the May mentoring series. Would any of the subsequent mentoring programs be useful for me.

    • Hello-I want to make sure that I’m understanding your question. If you’re asking if we will be offering additional mentoring classes, we plan to offer them next fall. If that isn’t the answer can you please send me an email at mliller@frederick.edu? Thanks- Mary Beth
