Mentor Training

MENTOR TRAINING is required by the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program, NGYCP, to ensure mentors have a full understanding of our mission and goals. This virtual training will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete. A set of questions will be asked at the end of each module. Answering and submitting these questions ensures mentors have met the training requirements to be a NGYCP and WYA mentor.

Mentor Training consists of 7 modules that can be completed at your own pace. You are encouraged to download the comprehensive mentor training manual. This is not only a supplemental to the training videos but can serve as a reference for your entire mentoring experience.

How to complete mentor training:

  • Click on each module video.
  • Watch any supplemental videos to the module.
  • Complete and submit the questions for each module.
