Mentorship training program: April marks the beginning of our formal mentorship training program (shoutout to Breni, Destiny, Schuyler, Jennifer, Grayson, Stephanie, and Ash who all made this program possible!). Our comprehensive 16-week program provides trainees with hands-on experience, shadowing and co-mentoring with experienced mentors. Mentor trainees learn how to meet people where they are and tailor learning to their own mentees' needs. THRIVE values the authentic connection and personalized support that our mentorship offers, as we elevate and empower each learner. We're excited to increase access to affirming mentorship development opportunities!
