How Do You Become a Mentor at Piney Grove? 
Mentor training requires attending one two-hour session, completing an application and a background check. Unable to attend a training?  Would you like to have training during day hours or at your organization or work site?  No problem - Mentor training is available upon request.  Last year training was held at churches, civic groups, mortgage companies, schools, and many other locations.
