Free workshop training for mentors

PRINCE FREDERICK, MD  – The Calvert County Mentoring Partnership (CCMP) is hosting a FREE Mentoring 101 training and roundtable discussion for local mentoring coordinators on Tuesday, July 12 at the Harriet Elizabeth Brown Community Center in Prince Frederick, from 9 am to 2 pm.

With expertise from the Maryland Mentoring Resource Center, Mentoring 101 will guide participants on how to train mentors to cultivate positive and lasting mentoring relationships. Lunch will be provided as a result of a generous donation from Dreamweaver Catering, a longtime supporter of mentoring in Calvert County.

Mentoring 101 incorporates recommendations from the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring, an evidence-based framework designed by the National Mentoring Partnership.

The goal is to teach program coordinators how to clarify mentor roles, communicate expectations and concerns, and promote diversity awareness in their training efforts. Calvert County Mentoring Partnership’s mission is to ensure youth mentoring programs are sustainable, demonstrate best practices, and meet the needs of youth in Calvert County.

This past year, CCMP partnered with Calvert County Public Schools to conduct a county-wide school-based mentoring survey. Among the existing 24 school-based programs, the areas identified as having the greatest need for support were training mentors (38%) and program funding at an overwhelming (64%).

The Calvert County Mentoring Partnership has been working diligently to rally a community-wide effort to support mentoring in Calvert County. We have partnered with Calvert Community Foundation and Chesapeake Charities with the goal of raising $5,000 to establish a Mentoring Fund that will bring additional resources to the existing underfunded mentoring programs throughout Calvert County.

Donations to the fund can be made via the Calvert Community Foundation online at or by mailing a check made payable to: Calvert Community Foundation c/o Chesapeake Charities 101 Log Canoe Circle, Stevensville, MD 21666.

Please add a note on your check or online that the donation is for mentoring. Gifts to the Calvert Community Foundation are fully tax deductible as allowable by law.

To RSVP for Mentoring 101, e-mail or leave a message at (443) 295-3709. Follow the Partnership on Facebook or Twitter @CalvertMP.
