Wide Open Spaces: Bridging the Resource Gap in Rural Mentoring (Free Webinar)
November 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Implementing a mentoring program comes with many challenges, including recruiting the right volunteers, enlisting youth into the program, and ensuring that matches have the support they need to thrive and endure. In rural communities, some of these challenges are even more difficult as programs deal with small populations from which to recruit, vast service areas with few population centers, transportation issues, and limited community resources. This webinar builds on the Mentoring in Rural Communities: Traveling the Distance to Facilitate Your Program training by the National Mentoring Resource Center (May 2016) to provide concrete strategies to address the many challenges faced by rural mentoring programs.
This meeting is a free public webinar, but we ask that each participant register individually.
