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.

Recent Class: Motivational Coaching

Have you ever wondered: How can I help my client when they don’t seem to be making progress?

Mentor University will provide training on a powerful technique called Motivational Coaching, which can help with this common question.

This virtual workshop will be presented by Julia Evans, LCSW, on the practice of Motivational Interviewing/Coaching. Mentors can use this tool to help clients work through their own resistance to behavior change.
