Welcome to Train the Trainer

Dear Newark Mentor:


We have built this website for your use.  Besides grantsmanship, we have included some additional information that we thought might help you and the young people in your community.  This page will be publicly available for the next year.  If you want us to add some category of information, please contact us.
