Upcoming and Ongoing Training for Mentoring Programs

Maryland MENTOR offers free trainings to everyone interested to help elevate the mentoring field. We feel when mentoring programs are prepared our youth receive the best relationships possible.

Mentoring Youth Impacted by the Opioid Crisis

The opioid epidemic impacts thousands across the country and is affecting people across gender, geography, race, and socioeconomic lines. While there are youth who are misusing opioids, they are using alcohol and marijuana more frequently. The opioid epidemic appears to most commonly impact youth in the form of the trauma they experience due to a parent, caregiver, or loved one struggling with or dying as a result of drug misuse. As mentors and caring adults in their lives, we are positioned to offer them timely support as they maneuver these difficult situations. Join us as we introduce a new training to the mentoring community that equips program staff and mentors with practical approaches to Mentoring Youth Impacted by The Opioid Crisis.

Audience:  Mentors, mentoring professionals, and youth-serving professionals
