Mentee-Approved Strategies for Addressing Tough Topics

Event Dates

When mentees are facing difficulty or want to talk about delicate issues, mentors and program staff can feel challenged to show up in a nurturing and helpful manner. 

Join mentoring expert Dustianne North (California Mentoring Partnership) for a moderated panel featuring Julia Pryce (Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work), mentoring scholar and co-developer of the Mentoring FAN model (in collaboration with Linda Gilkerson), which is based on observations of mentor-mentee dyads and provides a roadmap for adults in conversation with youth when difficult issues are at hand. Two young adult leaders will also offer their reflections and strategies.
