Mentor Training and Orientation*
Mentoring Nigeria has an in depth Mentor Training program. Volunteers learn about best practices in mentoring, including: the role of a mentor, building positive relationships with mentees, and the importance of communication. Mentors are taught the protocol for handling red flag issues, and the boundaries that should exist within a mentoring relationship. The training’s primary goal is to prepare mentors from diverse backgrounds to work effectively with their mentees. All mentors are provided with a thorough understanding of their volunteer commitment along with the rules and regulations of participating in a Mentoring Nigeria program.
The training is interactive and participants will engage in activities such as role plays and small group discussions.
