Mentor Resources

Being a mentor can be one of the most rewarding titles you have.  However, it can come with a lot of work and sometimes can leave you stumped.  When the tough conversations come up, it’s important to know how to handle the situation and talk about it with your mentee.  The COACH Kids staff are happy to help all of our mentors when a hard subject comes up, however, sometimes you just need some more information.  No matter what, you aren’t alone for the tough conversations.

The COACH Kids staff has put together a collection of materials to help answer some of the tough and confusing questions that you may have. Check back to this section often for newly curated materials or if you have a suggestion for a new resource feel free to point it out to us.
