Mentoring Best Practice Builder Forums

Mentoring Best Practices Builder Forum

Hosted by Mentoring Works Washington

In this monthly forum series, participants from new and developing mentoring programs in community-, school- or site-based programs can take an hour away from their plate of overflowing tasks and sit back to dig deeper into the best practices for mentoring with their peers. Each BPB session starts with a 15-20 minute presentation followed by participants’ questions and ideas. There is no commitment to participate in the full series; you can participate in a single session, a few, or all sessions.

Reasons to participate on January 26th

Mentor recruitment efforts are as crucial as the program design. Successful recruiting strategies help you find the "right" volunteers who have realistic expectations who will stay the course and meet your requirements. While we will discuss the following topics, primarily we will answer questions of you and ask you to share your questions and what works for you. MWW will discuss the following:

  • Effective marketing materials
  • Targeted recruitment effort
  • Taking advantage of every opportunity possible
  • Engaging mentoring participants in recruiting

Sessions made possible with funding support by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services' Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery.
