Mentor University

Continuing Education for Bridge Communities’ Mentors

Mentors are critical to the success of our client families, and Bridge aims to provide mentors with all the support and education needed to guide client families to success. Toward that end, Bridge Communities offers Mentor University, a series of workshops designed to build and strengthen key skills used in mentoring.

In 2014, Bridge is offering the “Financial Fitness” track of Mentor University workshops, designed for both mentors and clients to attend together. These financial literacy classes teach clients and mentors how to work together to solve financial challenges. 

Upcoming classes include:

Tuesday, May 13, 7-9 PM: Strategies for Paying Down Debt and Debt Management
DuPage AME Church, 4300 Yackley Ave, Lisle, IL 60532
