Mentorship (re)explained…

Mentors and mentorship are hot topics! While everyone may agree that this is a fundamental reason for success for our youth, what exactly does this mean? When you dig a little deeper, things are not what they seem. We will pull apart some myths, as well as look at the latest research and best practices in an interactive and thought-provoking session that will challenge the way you think about mentoring. Participants will gain knowledge about mentorship to help strengthen current programs and/or develop a new program. Presented by Joshua Kukowski and Brian McNeil from the University of MN Extension.

The University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension have partnered to offer the youth development brown bag webinar series since 2010. The purpose is to provide research-based information on hot topics, trends, and innovative programmatic efforts on content relevant to youth practitioners over the lunch hour (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. CT). The free webinar format provides professional development opportunities for people who work with youth without the cost and travel usually incurred with workshops and conferences. Participants are able to ask questions and get answers in real-time, while the presenter conducts interactive discussions, questions, and polls for sharing and applying the information to participants’ work.

This webinar series is free to participants, but registration is required.
