Mentors support Play for Peace programming in their community. Mentors include; teachers, social workers, school psychologists, community leaders and anyone passionate about working with children, supporting youth leadership, promoting learning through cooperation, inclusion, caring and fun.
Mentors have agreed to uphold the spirit of Play for Peace in all Play for Peace activities and share at least 4 experiences a year of Play for Peace activities with the Global Learning Community. They must be at least 21 years of age. A mentor can lead a group of youth facilitators to create a Play for Peace Club, more than one Play for Peace Club or lead Play for Peace activities themselves.
Initial Mentor and Youth Facilitator training is in-person and must be completed prior to this 1-hour, by appointment only, on-line class. During this class you will learn to access the resources and materials available to Play for Peace Mentors world-wide.
How to Become a Mentor
Initial mentor and youth facilitator training takes a minimum of 8 hours total (preferably a 30- 40 process) and accessible pricing varies by location. Once mentor and youth received an in-person Play for Peace Training, they are eligible to apply to register as a Mentor/Play for Peace Club in their community/school. Then, Play for Peace Global will contact the recommended mentor and provide them online help to run their Play for Peace club, be a part of mentor community and access mentor material.
Once training is completed by a Play for Peace Certified Trainer, Mentors must apply for membership here. Global staff will notify the club/mentor by sending a confirmation of registration email and set up a day/time for mentor online training.
