Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, Inc. has been awarded funding from Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County to implement new training programs aimed at developing stronger mentoring relationships for the children served in mentoring agencies across Palm Beach County. “Building Better Partners” is a training program designed as an enhancement activity to educate and support parents, guardians, mentors and mentored children once their child becomes placed with a mentor. One-to-one mentoring has the possibility to create positive lifelong changes for children during the mentoring experience; however, parents and volunteers must create a strong partnership together to help the youth. Training topics would allow all partners in the mentoring relationship to develop in the areas of diversity factors that impede academic and social achievement, mentoring relationship development, cultural competency, child development and child safety.
