Initial Mentor Training
In order to be an effective mentor to an Upward Bound student, mentors need to initially view a series of training videos that include the mentoring skills model, as well as tips for becoming a good mentor.
The list of files below requires Windows Media Player, it will start automatically when you click on the link.
*All videos appear courtesy of: The Mentoring Group. Mentor training videos are facilitated by Dr. Linda Phillips-Jones.
For more information please visit their website at: www.mentoringgroup.com
When viewing of the videos is complete mentors must fill out a Mentor Training Video Worksheet which is to then be submitted to the Upward Bound office for review. Once this is complete mentors will receive notification of their match with an Upward Bound student and communication may begin.
