Every Week (during the Pandemic)

Weekly Mentoring Program Support Call

Where: Online, check email for Zoom link or email [email protected].
When: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. (unless otherwise noted)
Each Monday during the pandemic, MENTOR Vermont is hosting program support webinar calls for any mentoring program staff member who is interested in participating. The purpose of the call is to check in with each other, and share ideas and resources about how we can best support mentors, mentees, and families during this time.
With summer winding down and programs having adapted over the last five months, we’re revamping the weekly call to not only be a time that program staff can come together to talk with one another, but also an “office hours” opportunity each week when Benji and Chad will be online and accessible, even if there are only a few people on the call.

There is NO Call on the Labor Day holiday. The next call will be on Monday, September 14 from 3:00-4:00 p.m.

There is no need to sign up in advance, or stay for the entire length of the call. Join us whenever works for you!

Week of September 28-October 2, 2020

Vermont Mentoring Symposium
(Note: this event has been postponed from May until September 28-October 2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic)

We are excited to share that this year’s Vermont Mentoring Symposium will be virtual and FREE this fall and will span over the week of September 28th with workshops and sessions scheduled throughout the week. The week will kick off with a welcome address on Monday, the 28th and will include a mixture of formal interactive workshops and shorter more informal conversations among program staff. The flexible format will allow participants to attend only the sessions that are most relevant to them and fit within their schedule, while still maintaining a formal opportunity to convene everyone as a larger group. Workshops will also be recorded for program staff to view later if they are unable to attend the session live.

Workshops and sessions will cover topics relevant to the needs of mentoring during the pandemic, including youth mental health and well-being, racial equity, guidelines for remote and physically distanced mentoring, and fundraising during COVID-19. We will also offer a first look at MENTOR Vermont and Careers CLiC’s Career and College resource guide for helping mentors support their mentee in navigating their career and education options after high school.
