You just got a new job, and your employer informs you that the company has an apprenticeship program. He asks if you’re interested in mentoring an apprentice. 

Not sure what to say?

With the MASTER MENTOR interactive game, you’ll walk in the shoes of a new mentor learning the ropes and face the day-to-day decisions that come with mentoring.

Each CHALLENGE is a five- to 10-minute game. Good luck!
