Live Video Chat - Pandemic Mentoring: Self-care & Setting Appropriate Expectations
Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Sponsored by All In Community

We are all dealing with a sense of losing connection with someone who is important to us. For those of us who are called to mentor a youth, a family or an adult, we are struggling to find solid footing in our current shifting foundation. Join mentoring expert, Director Maggie Middleton from Amachi Central Kentucky, for a real and relevant discussion on best practices and pivots for effective pandemic mentoring. We will explore how to set realistic expectations for both mentors and mentees so that you can continue to be a life-giving presence and a stable relationship in these uncertain times. We also will explore how you can lead and support your army of volunteer mentors.

About our guest speaker: Maggie has been involved in urban ministry and mentoring since 2001. A native of St. Louis, MO, and a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary, she has been on staff with Lexington Leadership Foundation since 2010. She has served as an Amachi match specialist, Fatherhood Initiative case manager, and is now the Program Director for Amachi. In her spare time, she volunteers as a mentor for Amachi and loves to kayak and be outdoors.
