Q: What is a "Meeting Mentor"
A: A "Meeting Mentor" is simply a volunteer with at least one year of RSA sobriety who serves as a mentor for someone who is starting an RSA meeting without at least a year of sobriety of their own. Facilitating a meeting can sometimes be challenging and it can be helpful to draw upon the wisdom of experience. The Meeting Mentor provides encouragement, support, direction, guidance and prayer coverage for the facilitator. The Mentor helps to identify and activate various resources to meet the needs of the meeting.
