Following Two-Day Training, trainees are invited to sign up for Mentoring from a member of our Leadership Group who has attended the Six-Day Training course run by Citizens UK. The expectation is that each trainee will meet with their mentor three or more times, at mutually convenient dates/times/locations, over the following nine months. The trainee is expected to initiate these meetings, realising that the mentor is volunteering their time as a mentor.
The overall aim of this mentoring scheme is to strengthen leadership at different levels of Citizens:mk and beyond, especially by broadening networks of relationships.
The remit of the mentor is to:
- ask open questions and listen to the challenges which the trainee faces as a community leader
- refer to the tools of community organising, especially the stick person, 121 and power analysis
- suggest other contacts within the Citizens:mk network for you to link with as appropriate.
Any questions about the scheme should be referred to the Community Organiser.
