Description:

Mentors serve an important role addressing skill gaps, acknowledging emotional needs and providing the foundations adult learners need for future success. By providing both professional and personal support, mentors foster supportive and nurturing relationships that actively promote learning.

“While adult learners work to reach educational goals, mentors provide support and encouragement in other areas of their lives.  Addressing barriers that can prevent educational  attainment allows students to not only reach educational goals, but also to build skills needed to obtain jobs, provide for families, address health needs, secure child care, and so much more,” says Bonnie Soriano, the Mentor Tutor Facilitator.

This training will discuss the purpose and meaning of mentoring adult learners, the limits of mentoring, learner-centered mentoring strategies, communication, life goal setting, career awareness and workplace skills.

Are you currently tutoring adult learners and want to improve your mentoring skills? This training is for you.
