Mentor Training

ACE Houston Annual Mentor Training

We ask that all mentors, both new and returning, join us for one session of mentor training, so we can prepare for the new mentor year together. It's a great opportunity to meet your co-mentors, learn what to expect for the 2023-2024 mentor year, understand the do's and don't's of mentoring, and discover tips and tricks for working with high school students. For those of you who missed our two sessions this year, no problem! Check out the video below, and we'll make sure to get you caught up.

ACE National Training opportunities

ACE Mentor Program of America also provides training webinars for mentors sporadically throughout the year. Register to join any of the upcoming opportunities, or check out the ACE Mentor Tools website here to watch past webinars (requires login with username and password provided in mentor registration account under the resources section).
