MVLF was recently featured by Mentoring Central for our utilization of the 'Substance of Change' course to train our mentors!
"As a member of the Leadership Foundations global network, MVLF was offered the opportunity to participate in a pilot program with Mentoring Central to utilize the Substance of Change: Building Assets in Mentees Affected by Substance Misuse course.
MVLF found the information from Substance of Change: Building Assets in Mentees Affected by Substance Misuse course to be valuable for all communities, including ones where addiction is prevalent. Mentors who took the course said they learned more about what addiction really is, how easy it is for a person to become addicted, and the importance of dropping their biases about addiction. After taking the course, mentors also felt more equipped to offer prevention resources to their mentees and let their mentees know there’s someone they can turn to when they are feeling isolated or stressed about something in their life."
