Martha’s House to Offer Free Workshop on Mentor Training March 9


Martha’s House, a transitional family housing program in Hermiston, is offering a free mentor training workshop on Saturday, March 9 from 9-11 a.m. at the First Christian Church, 775 W. Highland Ave.

The training is geared toward volunteers interested in or currently mentoring at-risk and vulnerable adults and youth.

Kriss Dammeyer, executive director of Made to Thrive, is the featured speaker and will discuss the fundamentals of mentorship, including setting expectations, understanding your mentee’s life experiences, and using your own experience to make a lasting impact on another person’s life.

The workshop will also include presentations from mentor leaders at Martha’s House and Forge Youth Mentoring, as well as an opportunity to sign up to become a mentor with a local organization or take a follow-up course to learn more.

Martha’s House is an 18-room transitional family housing program that connects each resident with a volunteer mentor as they work to improve their abilities in job interviews, parenting, personal finances, accountability, and other life skills.

RSVP for the mentor training workshop at the Martha’s House website.
