Training, Mentoring, and Ongoing Professional Development

All MarineParents.com Facebook Volunteers (MP FB VOs) start out as a Volunteer in Training (VIT) and must complete 4-phases of training through reading and activities online in the training sections of the MP FB VO website (MarineParents Facebook Volunteer). The trainer is typically the assistant coach of the MP Team Group in which the VIT will be working. Initial training for MP FB VOs is followed up with a period of mentoring in the MP Team group; the mentor is assigned by the coach. After mentoring has been completed, the decision for the VIT to moved into a Group Guide (GG) position will determined in a discussion with the VIT, trainer and Group Leader (GL). The period of training and mentoring will take from 6-8 weeks and can involve up to 40 hours of training time.
