Module Two

For Mentoring

DURATION: 6.5 hours

Module Two is an induction workshop for new mentors who are commencing their volunteering journey with EdConnect. Existing mentors who have not attended training in the last three years are also welcome, and encouraged, to attend as a refresher training session. This is a great way to further update skills and knowledge and make connections with other EdConnect volunteers.


Participants will learn about in-school youth mentoring, how EdConnect operates within schools, characteristics of the students currently in schools, personal expectations, understanding the mentoring relationship journey, responsibilities, communication, legal obligations as well as the types of activities you can do with your mentee.


This session is both interactive and motivating. Participants will leave with a tool kit ready and confidence to fulfill their role as an EdConnect in-school youth mentor.
