Wisdom in Practice: P2P Mentoring

Mentorship is a crucial step in developing ourselves as teachers.

Join us as a mentor or mentee for a facilitated teacher mentorship opportunity

How Do I Know This is For Me?

This peer to peer (P2P) mentoring professional development opportunity is for pre-service, new career and veteran teachers alike. 

Are you looking for relational resources to support you in daily challenges, or in supporting you in excelling in your role as a teacher or a health and well-being champion? This opportunity is for you. Mentors are paired with mentees through a career speed dating matching event. Following this, a goal setting meeting will be facilitated for pairs, after which mentees and mentors will select activities based on agreed upon goals, in their own individual styles and preferences. The program will take place over the course of a year and offer a midpoint pulse check and a wrap up celebration.

Participation is free for mentors, and $25 + GST and service fees for mentees. Pairs will also receive Skip the Dishes gift cards to support coffee or meals during virtual check-ins.
