Step 2: Register for a Training
The Parent Mentor Orientation Training is offered in a variety of ways. Parent Mentor Orientation Trainings will always be listed on the calendar of our website. We offer virtual statewide trainings, open to anyone across the state, quarterly. Many affiliate programs offer smaller in person trainings throughout the year. The trainings may be offered as a Combined Training (meaning Part 1 and Part 2 are completed together as a group) or as a 2 Part Training (meaning participants complete part 1 of the training in self paced modules and complete part 2 of the trianing as part of a live group).
Self Paced Work: If you have registered for a 2 Part Training, you will receive a password from the Training Facilitator for the self paced portion. You can click the link below and enter your password to begin your self paced work.
