Entering Research


Our mentee training curriculum was originally designed to be delivered as a 2-semester course sequence, but the materials can be used in multiple implementation formats. Some examples are presented here and detailed instructions for each of the activities mentioned is available in the curriculum.

Group Size

We recommend 8-12 participants for the full 8-hour mentor training. Facilitation data indicates this size is optimal for achieving the appropriate level of discussion. Our mentor training is a process-based curriculum that relies heavily on the experiences and contributions of each participant.

We do not recommend allowing observers to join the group for the full 8-hour mentor training. This can be disruptive to the trust and rapport that develops within the group.
