Our mentors train for scholar classes with the Leadership Education Mentoring Institute. Classes are available each summer, typically in Washington State or Portland. Information and registration are available here: Partial scholarships are available through CLC.
In addition, we host a guest speaker each year. On April 23 Kathy Mellor will work with our teens on Unleashing Your Voice and on April 24-25 she will work with parents at Supercharge Your Mentoring. "Join us for two days of inspiration! We will be going deep into becoming experts in the environments great mentors use to help people change!
Please see this webinar on emotional intelligence with Kathy Mellor!
We also offer mentor retreats at the coast each summer. It is a time to gather, reflect, and plan for the coming year.
We meet at 12:15P every other week for juniors mentors and every other week for scholar mentors.
Our community meetings held Thursdays throughout the year often include a training component or a book discussion.
