eMentors will take an online Aboriginal Awareness course

The eMentoring team has partnered with the Indigenous Leadership Development Institute to develop an online Aboriginal Cultural Awareness course that all eMentors will take before they are paired with their mentees.

The course is self-paced and based on previous knowledge of Aboriginal people in Canada. It will take between 1-4 hours and consists of the following four modules:

~ The Important of Culture and Cultural Awareness
~ Aboriginal Peoples of Canada
~ Canadian History from an Aboriginal Perspective
~ Past, Present and Future Challenges for Aboriginal Peoples

After each module, mentors must score 100% on a multiple choice test before moving to the next module. This is meant to be an introductory course that will facilitate cultural competency in eMentoring relationships. Mentors will also attend a mandatory orientation session that is scheduled for Saturday October 15th, 2011.
