RSVP by Friday, October 23rd!

When we attended this station about a year and a half ago, it was nothing short of fantastic! We anticipate it will be a great opportunity for your mentee to learn more about the real lives of firefighters (men and women!). This is an interactive field trip with a lot of stories, laughs, and fun. Your mentee may even have the opportunity to put on real fire fighting gear! Hope to see many of you there!!

Mentor Training: "Youth in Crisis: The Role of a Mentor"

What is crisis? How do adolescents respond to crisis? How can adults provide support during crisis, especially in the role of a mentor? What can a mentor really do? Find out the answers to these questions and the questions you have about youth crisis at this mentor training. Feel free to submit your questions ahead of time and I'll share them with the speaker.
