BUILD Mentor Training

When you become a BUILD Research Mentor, you are provided with a variety of training options. Before you gain access to supply funding that is associated with your BUILD mentee, you are required to participate in the BUILD Mentoring Community, which is a two-semester program. The first semester is a 9-week program that is a hybrid version of NRMN’s “Entering Mentoring” program. The second semester is a "try it/apply it" project where you implement what you learned in the first semester. You are also required to attend one Multicultural Mentoring workshop. Two are held each semester.
