Part of your commitment as a mentor is to attend two (2) Continuing Mentor Education (CME) opportunities every year.

CMEs include our MENTOR ROUNDTABLES and our INSPIRED SERIES. Please see below for the current schedule.

Additional CME opportunities will present themselves throughout the year, as we collaborate with our community non profit partners, and will be communicated to you via email. To be added to our email list, please click here. The sign up is located at the bottom of our home page.

Mentor Roundtables

Being a mentor is a role unlike any other. Even those of us with years of experience parenting and working with kids find ourselves needing to consider the effectiveness and appropriateness of our responses to our mentee’s challenges. By mentors, for mentors, and about mentoring, these open discussions are held monthly for the purpose of giving mentors a supportive small-group experience in which to contemplate their relationships with their mentees and their unique situations. Executive Director, Deborah Dalton will be facilitating Mentor Roundtables twice a month as follows:

Thursday Evenings – Mentor Mixer and Roundtable with Deb  4:30 – 6:00 pm

Friday Mornings – Breakfast and Roundtable with Deb  9:30 – 11:00 am
