5 workshops enjoyed, 13 more to go
It has been fun, it has been worthwhile, we have learnt new skills, we have made connections with others working as mentors and in youth development. We have learnt from Ross and Rod (our facilitators), we have learnt from the workshop material gathered from across the motu, we have learnt from each other. Experiences discussed, stories shared. Provoking some powerful thinking and reflection.
Over 160 people from 42 organisations (plus individuals) have participated in this workshop so far. It is a full-on day looking at making connections with young people, developing mentoring agreements, handling challenges and evaluating progress in the mentoring relationship. The workshop askes mentors to self- reflect on current practices and to seek new ideas through discussion. There is plenty of material to take home and refer to later.
Positive feedback suggests that the workshop is just what mentors need. NZYMN look forward to bringing the workshops to more locations in the North and South Islands.
Workshop fee: $35 inclusive GST and booking fee
