Mercy Connections Vermont Women’s Mentoring Program Training
Become a Mentor. Support an incarcerated or criminal justice-involved woman in building a sustainable life in Northwestern Vermont. Mentors come from all walks of life. They support, coach and function as a new and healthy relationship to women transitioning from the criminal justice system to community. Pairs of women are carefully matched for a mutually successful experience, meet one-on-one and participate together in group meetings, healthy social events and continuing education. Friendships are made and lives are transformed through this program.
Interested in becoming a mentor? Participate in training, Wednesdays, April 24- May 22, 5:30- 7:30 p.m. at Mercy Connections.
Our training program and ongoing support includes mentor support group meetings, education on issues which affect the re-entry process, and healthy social events. Women interested in the training do not need to have prior knowledge of the criminal justice system or mentoring experience to participate.
