The "The Eye of the Mentor Staff Training" is the most popular workshop of Corpening Personal Development.
—— WORKSHOP OUTLINE
The Eye of the Mentor (EOM) Staff Training Workshop
This workshop was developed in 2006 amidst heightened gang and youth violence issues across the U.S. It is designed to address the disconnect between at-risk students and the instructors that lead them.
EOM helps teachers, youth service providers, and college administrators understand where the behavior issues they see in their most challenging students come from.
It also teaches them how social biases, and student upbringing can affect student outcomes and what you can do to change them. Through the EOM participants gain evidence-based tools to help close the achievement gap through a research-based solution focused mentorship approach. The book “The Eye of the Mentor: Hip to the Game” written by Travis Corpening can be purchased by training participants as a take-home guide to supplement the tools learned during the workshop.
We have helped numerous participants develop the simple understanding of:
LEVEL 1: K12
In this power packed 1.5 hr. session learn the 3 keys to foster success in any student. Participants are taught to see student success and challenges from a student’s perspective.
Level 1 training will cover improving self-worth in at-risk and minority students, reframing to adapt to street culture, social media influence, and negative social peer groups.
LEVEL 2: K - College
In this powerful 3 hr. session learn the 3 keys to foster success in any student. Participants receive out of the box insight and are taught to see student success and challenges from a student’s perspective.
Level 2 training will cover combating the school to prison pipeline, improving self-worth in at-risk and minority students, social media influence, and negative social peer groups.
LEVEL 3: K - College
Now let us take it up a level. Level 3 EOM is geared for collegiate coaches, advisors, instructors, and administrators. This workshop is focused on expanding the lens by which we look at students of color at the community college level.
It provides participants with tools to combat barriers to minority student success, and what they can do to increase academic performance in this demographic. This session will also train staff on combating implicit bias at your institution.
