Welcome from university administrator, EnvironMentors chapter team, and College

…………………………………………………. OBJECTIVE: This workshop will provide a deeper understanding of the roles of mentors, the local issues that their student population faces, and review the EM program calendar and expectations. BACKGROUND: The EnvironMentors Mentor Training is partially informational where Mentors learn the philosophy behind mentoring, as well as introspective where Mentors will reflect on their past mentors. The informational sources should be given in a PowerPoint presentation. It is good to invite a local anthropologist or professor to talk about some of the issues that your student population faces. Let your College Access Partner give an overview of the college access events and materials that students will learn through the year and the role of the mentor in the CA process.
