Short Course on Youth Mentoring in the Digital Age

The MENTOR/UMass Boston Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring’s second Short Course @ UMass Boston was called Youth Mentoring in the Digital Age. The goal of this intensive 1 day course was to provide practitioners with a series of expert lectures and group discussions aimed at deepening their capacity to train, provide ethical guidelines, and supervise volunteer mentors working with youth around social media issues.  The Short Course was a huge success, and you can now view videos of the presentations. Please visit the short course website to view the videos and learn about the presenters.

    Can you webinar this or do you plan to?

    Reading all your info from Vancouver, BC Canada.

      Hello Lisa,

      Thank you for your interest! The good news is that we plan on filming each expert speaker and making the video available online to the public for no charge. In answer to your original question, there are no plans to include a web-based component or webinar on the actual day of the event.

      Live video streaming is definitely something we can look into for future Short Courses. We recognize and appreciate the fact that our audience is global. 🙂

    Is there any way for those of us who are unable to attend the conference in VA to attend this course? I would really love to!

      Hello Domingo Mota!

      As of right now, this Short Course is a series of expert lectures and group discussions which take place in Arlington, VA. There is no web-based component. However, we are planning on filming each expert speaker and making the video available to the general public. Thank you for your interest!

    I am very interested in attending this short course. I am wondering how much it might cost to register, or is it free?
