Mentor Training

mentortrainmirrorAll children must take the two hour mentor training before they are allowed to mentor our programs. Children ages eight and up can sign up for the Mentor Training Workshop. Programs are run by Pathways for Exceptional Children in collaboration with the Montville Township Recreation Department. Pre-registration for the Mentor Training is required, along with a $10 fee. Spaces in each training are limited to 25 children and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participants receive our Pathways’ “Include ME!” t-shirt and certificate of completion after taking the training. Parents are welcome to stay for the training. If you are unable to attend a mentor training you have registered for, you must give us at least 24 hours notice or you will forfeit the $10.30 registration fee. You must then register again for another mentor training in the future.

Children must be at least in the 3rd grade to register for mentor training.

Step 1:

Attend the 2-hour Mentor Training

  • Click the Register Now button below to sign-up for the next available Mentor Training.
  • This registration is only for NEW mentors who have not taken the Mentor Training.
  • Confirmation: You will receive an email confirming your training date. If a workshop is full, you will be offered the first available spot from a cancellation or in an upcoming workshop.
  • Cancellation: Please email Pathways at as early as possible if you must cancel or cannot come to the Mentor Training you have previously registered to attend. If you miss the training without calling 24 hours prior to the workshop, you will forfeit the $10.30 fee.

Step 2:

Sign Up to Become a Mentor For Specific Programs

  • View the Mentor’s Program Schedule and decide which children’s programs you’d like to mentor.
  • Complete the Mentor Sign Up Form. The form allows you to sign up to become a mentor for specific programs you select by submitting the programs and dates that you’re interested in. We will send you an email confirming we have space for you to mentor in the programs you select. Sign up early to reserve a mentor spot. Our programs sometimes fill up quickly!

The mentor training gives children the opportunity to feel what it is like to have special needs. The goal is to develop empathy and understand that disability is defined more by attitude than anything else!
