Digital Mentor Group Inc.
I am President and Founding Partner of Digital Mentor Group Inc. For 28 years, we specialized in designing, building, and deploying on the job training for manufacturing, service, and processing organizations. I also serve as Vice President - Productivity Mentoring, for Innovation Canada.
I am interested in being involved in this project. Thanks, Kate Rushton for including me on this list and thinking that I could make a meaningful addition to this important project. Mentoring and a BOD are excellent methods to help develop the skills, knowledge, behaviors, and strategies to help prepare people for their future.
Thanks for this inspiration. A few weeks back, I posted a potential project idea on the Vocational Training & Entrepreneurship portion of the site. I've outlined our proposal for skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled labour training for process-based work and skilled trades. Please take a look at it.
I have submitted a skilled trades proposal, titled "Every Buddy A Trainer" Learning System for Any Person, Task, Language, or Skill, in the (2) Vocational Training & Entrepreneurship section of openIDEO. There may be some things there that would apply to your proposal, especially equipping mentors with skills necessary to transfer their skills, knowledge, and experience to youth. We are looking for partners, as well.
