After we receive your application to become a mentor, we will contact you to schedule a Mentor Training. During this training, we will cover the following topics: (1) a Take Stock in Children overview, (2) student expectations, (3) the roles and responsibilities of the mentor, and (4) additional student services.
If you have any training-related questions, please e-mail BrowardMentor@tsic.org or call (754) 600-9756.
Once you are matched with a mentee, we will send you a Mentor Toolkit. The Mentor Toolkit is updated annually and provides you with a blueprint of activity/discussion examples for your mentoring sessions. The Mentor Toolkit begins with explaining how you can identify your student’s needs. Then, it illustrates multiple personal growth and development exercises that you can do with your mentee. Section 3 is an educational planning guide and Section 4 describes how you can support your mentee’s academic success. The last section provides you with exercise examples to help you develop a career plan with them. You can view a copy of the Mentor Toolkit here: Mentor Toolkit.
If you are a mentor and do not have a copy of the Mentor Toolkit, please contact your Mentor Program Coordinator at BrowardMentor@tsic.org or at (754) 600-9756.
Throughout the year, and depending on the needs of mentors, the Mentor Program Coordinator organizes mentoring workshops. These mentoring workshops offer guidance and support during the year to mentors throughout the county. Previous workshop topics for mentors include: preparing your mentees for standardized testing; getting your mentee ready for high school; knowing your mentee’s graduation requirements; and how to work with your School Coordinator, Student Advocate, and school personnel. Check out our upcoming workshops and events here.
Please e-mail BrowardMentor@tsic.org or call (754) 600-9756 for more information on the continued mentoring education opportunities we offer at Take Stock in Children.
