The mentor training prepares the mentor with the knowledge and tools they will need to manage a successful mentoring relationship. The mentor training consists of an overview of:

-         the Take Stock in Children program

-         student qualifications and requirements to participate in the program.

-         the role of the mentor 

-         mentor/mentee relationship building.

Due to the current circumstances (COVID-19), our monthly face-to-face mentor training has been canceled until further notice. Please refer to the link below for the online mentor training.

If you have any questions upon completion of the training, I will be happy to answer them or provide the opportunity for a one-on-one virtual training. You are not obligated to commit to the program after the training. You can take some time to ensure that mentoring a deserving student will be a great fit for you before making the commitment to the program.


Once you have reviewed the mentor training, please let me know and we will proceed with the next steps - background check and fingerprinting scheduling.
