1st degree mentoring is a great deal of the usual cases we are called for. These young adults failing at school, young adults with anxiety, young adults with pot or video game addiction (or both) are stuck and they need our help. Very often, we are the last resort. When counselling young adults has failed, we can succeed. When meds by themselves have failed, we can succeed. You will learn a truly exciting, comprehensive way to not only free young adults from their failures but help them find their path towards success. All the while, with the support of Master Level Mentors and 2nd Degree Mentors who are there for you, your clients and their family.
In your training as a mentor for young adults in 1st degree mentoring, you will be trained as follows:
1) One Weekend Workshop. (Spring or Fall)
Friday 7 - 10 p.m.
Saturday 10 - 1 and 2 - 5 (Bring your lunch to your computer, we tend to hang and chat)
Sunday 10 - 1 and 2 - 5
2) Once a week sessions
Thursdays 7 - 9 p.m.
Classes start the Thursday after your weekend.
There are three semesters. 11 weeks of teaching followed by an end of semester oral and written exam. There is a 4 - 5 weeks break between semesters.
(For those who have learning challenges with either oral or written exams, please let us know before beginning the classes and we will make special arrangements for you. That is, after all, one of our specialties for our clients. It gives us pleasure to offer the same support to our MIT's).
1st degree mentors are paid $35 per hour for their work. Their is no extra work to do besides your mentoring. This saves you time and money.
Our average client stays between six months and twelve months. As your practice continues, you will acquire the challenging clients who depend on you to get through all sorts of issues. These become the long term clients, staying sometimes for two or three years. This helps build up a solid practice.
Please Note: All workshops and classes are online and are live. You are encouraged to participate and you will have regular opportunities to practice all the mentor-client interactions you are taught with other Mentors In Training (MIT's).
