Once you’ve chosen to become a mentor, the Grizzlies Foundation offers a variety of resources and opportunities to help you be a better mentor and to support the relationship you’re developing with your mentee:

Training Opportunities

The Memphis Mentoring Partnership offers a variety of mentor training workshops throughout the year to help you build skills and to enhance the relationship with your mentee. Check the calendar for upcoming programs.

Mentor Networking

Throughout the year, the Grizzlies Foundation hosts events and gatherings to recruit mentors and to give current mentors opportunities to discuss issues, share stories and meet one another.

TEAMmates

“TEAMmates” is the Grizzlies Foundation’s new initiative to stay connected to those who sign up to mentor through the Grizzlies. It’s also an effort to build a network among mentors in Memphis. We will regularly communicate with mentors, take feedback from mentors, host special educational and social events for mentors and recognize mentors’ dedication and efforts to “go above and beyond” to help young people.
