By reading and signing below, I acknowledge that I agree to the following: I agree to participate in all required trainings, including periodic training meetings. I agree to abide by all Girl Be Heard (GBH) rules and procedures, as stated in the Mentor Handbook or provided by GBH staff and/or Program Coordinator. I will complete my commitment to work with the program at least four hours per month for a full year, unless otherwise agreed with GBH. I will abide by federal law requiring that children’s records remain confidential and any information obtained about a child may not be disclosed to others except the child’s parents and/or legal guardian. I agree to honor these confidentiality requirements. I consent to GBH verifying all information contained herein, and to a fingerprint check. I will NOT take my mentee, if under 18, to any unsupervised settings until my background checks are returned and I have obtained parental consent. When I am meeting with my mentee, if under 18, her parent/legal guardian must know where I am and be able to contact me. I will contact my program coordinator and mentee if I will be absent from a mentoring session, and I understand that excessive absences will result in removal from the program. I will contact GBH if I have any problems or concerns about my mentoring relationship.
