As the number of Americans over the age of 50 continues its pace as the fastest growing population, the need for
positive adult role models has never been greater. MENTOR estimates that nearly 15 million young people could benefit from high-quality, formal mentoring relationships. Linking these youth with these older adults is a vital strategy to help close the mentoring gap. The Wisdom of Age: A Handbook for Mentors is a comprehensive resource designed to offer practical information as well as real tools to develop and strengthen successful mentoring relationships between 50+ mentors and today’s young people.
This online course from Education Northwest gives video scenarios and training to help you as a mentor navigate difficult conversations.
