The Impact of Mentoring looks at the complexity and roots behind the power of being, and having, a mentor.  The concept of “mentoring” is in no way new or innovative, and taps into the basic roots of humankind and connectedness.  This course explores the depth of human relationships and the effectiveness of all people, not just “at-risk” people, having mentors.  Current issues such as mentoring best practices, fostering effective relationships, cross age and cross gender mentoring and the pertinence of race and ethnicity will be debated, studied, and explored.   This class is designed for any student who is interested in exploring the power behind having healthy, human relationships and the importance of mentoring for individuals with Substance Use and Mental Health issues.
