Developing a mentorship mindset: Critical mentoring strategies to support every child
Caregivers, educators, coaches, extended family members and other adults in young people’s lives have opportunities to have meaningful conversations with young people every day – conversations that can help young people process their emotions, understand their experiences and the world around them, receive validation and perspective, build a sense of identity, and connect with a sense of purpose. But how many of us really see ourselves as “mentors” to the young people in our lives? And how can mentoring relationships of all kinds directly address the impacts of race, class, gender, sexuality and other factors on young people’s identities and experiences? Join Dudney Sylla of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and Dr. Torie Weiston Serdan, author of Critical Mentoring, for an interactive discussion about the power of having a mentoring mindset in your interactions with the young people in your lives, and how young people and adults can cultivate a critical consciousness and take action against inequality in the context of these powerful relationships.
