This interactive course is built on the code of ethical principles of mentoring as presented in “First do no harm: Ethical Principles for Youth Mentoring Relationships” paper by Drs. Jean Rhodes, Belle Liang and Renee Spencer. It’s intended to help mentors prepare for ethical and safety issues before they are matched.
*Now available for site-based mentors, too.
Just as ethical guidelines are crucial in other professions (doctors, lawyers, psychologists), they are equally fundamental to successful mentoring relationships.
In this course, mentors encounter a series of everyday situations that require making decisions. Using a code of ethics helps mentors make decisions that will protect both the mentor and the mentee from uncomfortable and problematic situations that can jeopardize their relationship.
Before being matched with a mentee, prospective mentors complete the self-paced course, which includes six sections—one for each ethical principle. Additional administrative software lets administrators view mentors’ answers and monitor their progress throughout the course.
(Most people complete this course in approximately thirty to forty-five minutes.)
