What is XL-Mentoring National and how can it help you?

XL-Mentoring National offers a simple, effective training resource for churches, youth workers and leaders to enable them to build lasting, transformative relationships with young people in their schools, communities and families.

The church is uniquely positioned in every community to reach out and make a significant difference in the lives of struggling young people in their area. But often it can be difficult to find the opportunity to form relationships with those who don’t necessarily engage with church.

Who is the course for?

While everyone has the potential to become a mentor, the XL-Mentoring National training course will fully equip you to:

Set up and successfully run your own mentoring project
Train your own local mentors.

In order to do this, this course is design to train you to become an XL-Mentoring Co-ordinator. You will learn how to recruit, train, support and supervise volunteer mentors. Your mentors will then give two hours a week, face to face time to a young person.

The course covers topics like;

  • relationship development,
  • challenges,
  • goal setting,
  • recruiting mentors,
  • building relationships with your local school and
  • Safe-guarding.

While XLM will continue to advise and support you along the way, you retain total ownership of your project including brand, strategy and growth.
