Training to become a volunteer mentor has 2 components: 1) in-person training and 2) online training through AMP. Please try to complete the online training before your in-person training date.
The Alberta Mentoring Partnership (AMP) created an online training course to provide mentors with an overview of the core concepts of mentoring and what’s involved in mentoring a young person. The course is intended to serve as an orientation to the world of mentoring. Participants learn what it means to be a mentor and will get an idea of how mentoring programs work. The course covers the basics of mentoring: the history of mentoring, what mentors actually do, what kind of support mentors can expect from your mentoring program and an introduction to the dynamics of the mentoring relationship.
