At the heart of mentoring a young person is also helping to prepare them for adulthood. Likewise, if you are working with mentors who are themselves young adults, it’s important to provide them the tools they need to be successful in their mentorship role. The activities included in the Youth Development module prepare mentors to handle emergency scenarios, uphold workplace standards, create boundaries with their mentees, and feel confident discussing challenges their mentees might bring to them.
Emergency Scenarios and Mandatory Reporting Mentors will learn about safety and emergency procedures when interacting with youth. They will also understand their legal responsibilities for reporting suspected abuse or maltreatment.
Respect in the Workplace Mentors will review anti harassment policies and determine the appropriateness of various scenarios.
