Before being matched with a student, each new TeamMates Mentor is required to attend a new mentor training session. These discussion-based trainings provide information on policy and procedures, tell you what to expect in your mentoring relationship, provide ongoing resources, and give you mentoring activity ideas. It is also an opportunity for new mentors to ask questions.
Lincoln TeamMates is currently offering both in-person and virtual trainings. Please choose whichever training style will work best for your schedule and comfort level.
All in-person trainings are held at the LPS District Office located at 5905 O St. Please bring a state-issued photo ID and be prepared to have your photograph taken for your TeamMates ID badge. Masks are required in LPS buildings for those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. They are optional for anyone who is fully vaccinated.
Virtual trainings will be held via Zoom. More information and the Zoom link will be emailed to you after registration. Following training, new mentors must make an appointment to visit the LPS District Office (5905 O Street) to have their photograph taken for their TeamMates ID badge.
