Absolutely. Throughout the year we offer a series of Life Skills workshops designed to help Senior and Junior Partners improve their skills with regard to diversity, communication, school advocacy, etc. All partnerships are encouraged to attend.
Senior Partners are also eligible to attend the free Mentor Enrichment Trainings that are put on by the Youth Mentoring Collaborative and held at West High School. These trainings take place monthly and cover a wide range of topics including: preparing for graduation and college, talking to a youth about sex, building trust, setting effective boundaries, and so on.
