MENTOR Independence Region is offering a free, two-part, virtual training The Essentials: A Curriculum for People Who Mentor Black Youth on July 27 12PM-2PM EST and July 29 12PM-2PM EST. In order to develop authentic relationships with Black youth, mentors delve deep into their own power and privilege, unpack their own biases, and understand how to manage and use them in a mentoring relationship.
In this interactive virtual training participants will:
- Move beyond cultural competence towards an integration of critical consciousness.
- Build their capacity to meet their mentees “where they are” and help mentees embrace and engage existing social capital.
- Learn skills and tools to embrace and impart a critical consciousness model into their mentoring approach.
