Mentor Training Series

All sessions are open to the general public and free. We encourage anyone who works with youth to attend and ask that you please register for each session you plan to attend to help us in planning room size.  


Current Project Friendship mentors are required to attend TWO of the seven sessions. Seniors and those who are planning to study abroad next year should attend the Closing the Relationship session in April. You can attend more than 2 if you want to!


Please note training session location and time, they go back and forth between St. Olaf and Carleton College. Should the location change we will message the email address you provide at registration.

New Mentor Training Sessions

All new Project Friendship mentors are required to attend the new mentor training session once. You do not need to register for this training. Please bring your background check forms (there are two forms) to the training if you have not turned them in yet.
