Inevitably there will be moments of uncertainty, where you're unsure what to do, say, or write. Ongoing mentor training will allow you to gather information, build skills, and refresh capacities necessary to tackle anything with your mentee. These resources and additional opportunities for training and education will guide you through times of ambiguity throughout your length of match.
Monthly Learning Moments allow you to build a deeper context of the education landscape and the forces that may be affecting your mentee. The Learning Moments are designed to cultivate and extend your understanding of the public education system, issues of equity along racial and socioeconomic lines and how these elements interact to create an opportunity gap for our students. As a mentor, we hope you will use these resources to grow personally and professionally alongside your mentee and that you will feel galvanized to take action to support broader equity in education. You can access the Learning Moments by navigating to the grade-level pages below.
The Learning Center is a centralized collection of resources for iMentor staff, partners, mentors, mentees, funders, schools, and other friends of iMentor. The goal of the Learning Center is to provide everyone the tools and information they need to fulfill their roles in our program.
