Mentor Meetups

Building community among mentors through a series of events where they can collaborate and share knowledge with other mentors of online learners in their area.

Mentor Meet Up, powered by Michigan Virtual

you are not alone.

Being the only mentor (or even one of a handful of mentors) for online learners at your school can be an isolating experience. When you’re the only one (or one of a few) in your position, it can be difficult to define your responsibilities and figure out what you should be doing to help your online students succeed. 

In our experience, we’ve found that mentors need more opportunities for community building and professional development as it relates to the unique but critical role they play in their schools.

At these events, you will:

  • Connect with other mentors
  • Share your mentoring experience & hear about the experiences of other mentors
  • Examine an example of a mentoring system in action
  • Discover best practices for mentoring online students (on topics including pacing, building relationships, communicating with students and more) ​
  • Learn more about what resources are available to you as mentor
  • Receive up-to-date information on the latest pupil accounting policies and practices.
  • Reflect upon and refine your school's online mentoring model.
