Mentoring training

Tonight I went to my first mentoring training session. This mentoring organization is site-based, meaning we always meet with our mentees in a supervised environment at a specific site where other mentors meet with their kids. I’m still awaiting a placement, so we’ll see where I end up.

I was told at the end of it that I’d have to get a formal background check and get finger printed – just to make sure I wasn’t a former child molester or animal killer. It’s weird to think about getting a background check. You don’t even get to see the “background” report that these people are getting of you. I’ve always wondered what one actually looks like – a really one that is not on TV. Does it tell you information on the person’s siblings and all the things that their siblings and mothers and fathers have done, too?
