    • Welcome to the Prospective Academic Mentor Training!

      Thank you for giving your time to make a difference in the lives of youth through Be A Mentor's virtual Academic Mentor Program. This training is put together by Be A Mentor, using over 29 years of experience in mentoring. Prospective Academic Mentors will be provided with information about the roles and skills of Academic Mentors. Tools for supporting mentees academically, in goal setting, career exploration, and other areas of their life will also be shared. The support that you are preparing to provide can have an immense impact on your mentee, and we hope that it will also be a meaningful experience for you.
