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, appreciating 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 relational networks.
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.
These meetings are confidential. The Community Organiser should be informed only that the meeting has taken place.
Any questions about the scheme should be referred to the Community Organiser.
