Lincoln TeamMates hosts a number of additional training opportunities for mentors, including Mentor Academies.
2020-2021 Mentor Academies
Mentor Academies, held at the Lincoln Public Schools District Office (5905 O Street), feature speakers on a variety of mentoring-related topics and provide valuable information to expand and refresh your mentoring toolbox. These learning opportunities are not required, but all mentors are encouraged to attend to receive extra insight into the ever-changing mentor environment and to enhance your mentoring experience. Mentors are asked to participate in at least one learning activity each year.
