New Mentor Training Toolkit Provides Ready-to-Use Materials

We are pleased to announce the release of a great new product that will help our mentoring coordinators around the country provide more rigorous, timely, and consistent training for our volunteer mentors. The Mentor Pre-Match Training Toolkit provides a set of downloadable training slides and a facilitator’s guide that walks staff through the delivery of the four-plus hours of pre-match training. This new resource builds on the original YBUSA mentor training materials by providing ready-to-use presentation materials and handouts. It also provides pre-post measures of mentor knowledge so that you can be assured that your training is giving mentors the skills and information they need to be successful.

We hope that this new resource makes it easier to provide high-quality mentor training to all your volunteers. Download these new materials in the Resources section of the Mentoring Community of Practice.
