The safety of young people is at the heart of all we do and it is the responsibility of youth-serving programs to ensure that mentors and volunteers are safe and caring adults. Join MMP for an advanced training that will build upon the basics of screening. Participants will have the opportunity to refine program eligibility requirements, receive feedback on program applications and interview forms, enhance awareness of red flags, and practice relevant steps in the screening process.  Participants will receive MMP’s Advanced Screening Workbook which contains useful tools and templates to support screening of volunteers and mentors.

You’ll walk away with the ability to:

  • Refine and enhance your screening practices and procedures
  • Identify red flags that might be raised from a prospective mentor or volunteer

This training is best for:

  • Staff that want to refine and improve existing mentor screening and on-boarding processes
  • Organizational leadership tasked with designing screening policies
