With funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention of the U.S. Department of Justice, TCAM has created these free training resources.
These training modules incorporate mentoring research and best practices, interactive activities, opportunities to learn and practice skills, and recommended resources. Each of the modules can be completed in 30–40 minutes—at a time that’s convenient for you.
TCAM Online Training Modules for Staff
These training modules are designed to increase the capacity of mentoring program staff to provide evidence-based mentoring services to transform the lives of vulnerable youth.
TCAM Online Training Series for Mentors
This series of six online training modules for mentors focuses on how to be an effective mentor to a young person who is involved in the juvenile justice or foster care system or is at risk for gang involvement. The modules are designed to be used in combination with in-person mentor training provided by local mentoring programs.
By participating in TCAM’s facilitated courses, grantees will spend approximately two hours per week engaged in course activities that are either scheduled for a particular date and time (e.g., webinars) or completed at the individual’s convenience. TCAM staff will be available for assistance throughout the course. To reap the maximum benefits from the course, TCAM recommends that grantees participate in all sessions.
