Advisor Workshop Series (ongoing training sessions)
Event Description: Join the Congressional Award National Office for a workshop on learning all there is to know about being an Advisor in your community.
Adult volunteers are paramount to the success of The Congressional Award and can set a positive tone for the youth experience. Together, The Award team and Advisors work in partnership for the betterment of America’s youth. Adults advise participants on an individual basis, helping them set challenging but achievable goals. They monitor progress in earning an award and can even validate completed activities. Please note parents and relatives of youth participants are not permitted to be their advisors.
This new workshop will be offered monthly and provide an understanding of The Congressional Award program requirements and deadlines, how to effectively advise and mentor youths, along with common award application mistakes, helpful resources, award ceremonies, events, and more!
Pencil us in on your calendar! Workshops will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at 3 p.m. ET. These virtual workshops will be hosted on Zoom.
