Q.Can I meet with my mentee outside of school?

A.  For liability reasons, Legacy Youth Mentoring, AKA Lindsay's Legacy Mentoring cannot require or encourage you to meet with your mentee outside of the school, but some long-term mentor/mentee relationships are fostered outside of the school context, in ADDITION to within the school. For your own protection, it is advised you seek written permission of a guardian to cover your personal liability outside of the school setting.  LYM cannot be held liable for these occurrences because any time spent with a mentee off school property is not considered to be a part of the school-based mentoring program, as outlined in the new mentor training session.
