Exploring Mentoring is a workshop that is open to all year 10-12 students who would like to explore the possibility of becoming a Mentor. Mentoring can help develop your leadership skills in Christian ministry. It can give you skills to learn more about the diversity of all people. All people are different and can offer gifts and skills regardless of their ability.
