" Mentoring is a Whole New Ball Game!"
with Caitlin Williams

Have you been interested in mentoring? Have you been wanting to share
your wisdom and savvy with others? Are you excited about encouraging
others to join our field? Or, do you wish you had a mentor, yourself?

Mentoring is the fastest growing activity in institutions across North
America. The 8Rs program is pursuing this through its Info*Nation Web
site - not your average approach for attracting the gifted and the
creative. The Partnership is rebuilding the Web sites of provincial and
territorial associations across Canada to develop a fresh Career Centre
that will be an important new tool nationally. These are but the tip of
the iceberg.

Learn about new options and models for mentoring and how you can be
part of this exciting new initiative.
