A New ERA In Mentor Training

“The Mentoring Center’s new online trainings are just what we needed! We now require every incoming mentor to take their Making of a Mentor/Relationship Building training before we make a new match! Thanks to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio for funding our use of these super trainings! ”

- Kathleen List, VP Program, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati







“The training was very useful. It is something that I want to make mandatory for all mentors to go through before they start mentoring. Excellent content and it was very thought provoking.” [The program bought 80 “training slots” to train all their mentors!] ”

- Darwin V. Thompson, Mentor Coordinator, Housing Programs/ Community of Hope, Inc., Washington, D.C.
