Effective Mentoring Programs: Supporting Mentors and Making Matches
Join PHENND for a training on designing and managing high-quality mentoring programs. Led by the region’s experts, the Mentoring Partnership & Resource Center, this training will focus on two of the five Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring programs: Standard 4: Matching and Initiation and Standard 5: Monitoring and Support.
Friday, September 16
10 AM – 3:30 PM
Location: ARCH 108
3601 Locust Walk
This training is intended for programs that use college student volunteers as mentors, as well as programs engaged in “near peer” mentoring. The primary audience is campus administrators involved in PHENND’s Next Steps AmeriCorps Program and the GEAR UP initiative. However, 10 additional slots will be available for administrators from PHENND member campuses more broadly for a small fee.
Lunch will be included and everyone will take home training materials.
Parking & directions: Parking is difficult around the University of Pennsylvania. Please take SEPTA if you can. The ARCH is easily accessible via the Green Line Trolleys and a short walk from the 34th St El stop (plus the #21 and #42 bus routes). If you must drive, there are several pay lots around campus. See the campus parking map here.
