Thursday, November 30th


Grace Baptist Church

Presented by: Dani Duppong, AIM Match Coordinator

Would you like to improve your communication with your mentee? Communicating with young people is not always easy and may take some practice. In this training, we will discuss some tips on how to educate yourself and your mentee on emotional literacy. We will also focus on how equitable mentoring relationships are the most successful and how to promote equality in your meetings.

Activity Ideas
