Mentor Training Call Series #1 – You and Your Operation as Mentor

September 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Mentor Training Call #1: You and Your Operation as Mentor

Mentoring is different from being an employer in several essential ways. Some mentoring skills are natural for each of us while others will be a stretch; determining your incoming strengths and stretches helps you know what sort of apprentice will work for you. Creating an accurate apprenticeship description that is both appealing and realistic about the ups and downs of regenerative agriculture is the other foundation for an effective and enjoyable mentoring experience. We’ll discuss mentoring skills to hone, and share ways to describe work schedules, location, isolation, and other factors, to be sure your description will appeal to the applicants you most want to attract.

This workshop is part 1 of a seven-call series on mentoring in agricultural, led by Julie Sullivan, one of the founding mentors of Quivira’s New Agrarian apprenticeship program.

If you have any questions, send an email to newagrarian@quiviracoalition.org.
