The transition from adolescence to adulthood can be confusing and difficult—emotionally, mentally and logistically. A mentor can serve as a personal tour guide to this stage of life, especially a mentor who has recently experienced it. However, finding a positive role model can be difficult in rural communities, as they are less populated and have fewer young adult inhabitants. Virtual mentorship opportunities can help rural communities widen their networks by overcoming geographical constraints. In this workshop we describe one virtual mentorship model, Rural eMentoring BC’s eMentoring program, and how it can be used in rural high schools. This free program virtually connects rural youth with mentors who are in a variety of post secondary programs in BC. Post secondary students are ideal mentors for youth, as they are near-peers who are more relatable and less intimidating than working professionals—and who better to encourage students to consider post secondary than post secondary students! In the eMentoring program, mentors guide students through a flexible, semi-structured curriculum that prepares them for life after high school. Along the way, mentors describe their journey to adulthood, and their process for making decisions about careers and post secondary. Mentees learn from their mentor’s journey, and get personalized advice about well-being, budgeting, studying, moving away from home and much more. We will demonstrate how mentors and mentees safely communicate using eMentoring's online platform, and will showcase our curriculum. Learn the different ways you can bring eMentors to your students, and how eMentoring can help you meet your school’s goals. Participants will leave this session understanding resources available through Rural eMentoring BC, and knowing the value of near-peer mentorship.
