Mentoring Plus - Engaging retirees with young adults 16+ and older
Friday November 9, 2018  12pm - 1pm (1 Hour )
Lecture / Seminar

Event in Room: 107

Please join us for this free Lunchtime Learning session presented by Acadia Lifelong Learning.

We have a large retired population in Nova Scotia that want to be meaningful engaged in their community. On the other side we have youth 16+ and young adults (Mature Learners), that have been unsuccessful in making the transition into a career. To address this challenge, we want to bring together the two groups to leverage the knowledge of the retirees, to help these populations. To address this, we have created Mentoring Plus. Mentoring Plus draws upon the skills and knowledge of retirees to help support youth 16+ and young adults ( Mature learners) to explore and connect to career paths related to the Future of Work, by Implementing Team Mentoring Initiatives. * (Teams of retirees would be involved in initiative(s) related to careers and The Future of Work)*
