Are you ready to start making an impact in the lives of youth in your community?
The team at Catalyst Mentoring is excited to invite you to our Mentor Bootcamp! This is a two-session bootcamp (July 14th & 21s) full of great information that will set you up for success with your mentees. We’ve broken this into two sessions in order for us to really take time with the material and talk about how you can implement it in your future mentoring relationships. You will need to sign up for both sessions to get through the material, so do make sure to RSVP to both below!
In Session One (July 14th), we will be going over the basics of mentoring and how mentorship can change the trajectory of a kids life. We will cover ACE’s (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and how our community scores compared to others in our state. We will end the session with an introduction to Adolescent Brain Development, giving us a window into how our youth make decisions and how to meet them where they are.
In Session Two (July 21st), we will discuss healthy conflict and what that looks like with your mentees. We will introduce the 40 developmental assets and how mentorship can increase these and the likelihood a young person will succeed in life. We will end our bootcamp with a Framework for Understanding Poverty. This will help us understand the culture different youth come from and how different forms of poverty impact their lives.
Worried about dinner? We will have pizza & salad for all of our future mentors who RSVP as well as root beer floats to make the hours go by a little faster!
