Mentoring: Adventure Awaits!

Presented by Christine Mitchell

Saturday 11 February 2023

10:00am - 1:00pm


0.3 PS CEUs Available

*No partial CEUs will be provided*

Event Description:

Mentors and potential mentors will collectively explore how we can expand our contribution to the local community using mentoring as a vehicle.  Through shared experiences, facilitated brainstorming and collective decision making, the membership at SCRID (or workshop participants) will generate our own definition of mentoring. This workshop is designed with curiosity in mind for experienced as well as potential mentors. 

Educational Objectives:

Participants will share knowledge on what mentoring has been and could be.   Using everyday terms, we will cover the various skillsets and characteristics that mentors can embody, develop and embrace.  Participants will explore skill-sharing, utilizing the robust strengths within our community and what mentees might want as part of the mentoring journey.  Participants will also generate a shared understanding of the various mentoring relationships that exist in our field and how we can partner with mentees on their journey.  The objectives will dovetail into SCRID’s primary goal of generating a list of people excited about mentoring, with a shared understanding of the culture of mentoring that we want to create in the SoCal area and volunteers interested in the SCRID mentoring pilot.
