Phase 3: The Beacon
This phase further builds on the concepts learned in Phase 2. It includes group skill development opportunities, observation of interpreted work, and direct individualized mentoring with a team of trained mentors. Mentoring occurs at a distance using video technology. The professional development activities will be based on individual needs and goals.
The mentoring path will vary based on the goals and needs determined during mentoring.
