Virtual Welding Mentoring Comes to TRPN Students

Donna ISD and La Feria ISD Texas Regional Pathways Network students participated in the first TRPN Virtual Mentoring workshop on June 21st and June 23rd. Addressing the audience were mentors Janie Johnston Lopez and Dr. Norma Salaiz, RGV LEAD contractors. The duo shared, in detail, employability skills. As part of their presentation, they shared two welding employability skills videos. Welding Tips and Tricks by Jody Collier was shared at the first mentoring meeting. The second meeting highlighted “5 Mistakes Beginner Welders Make In Weld School.”

Additionally, Lopez and Salaiz shared welding information from the RGV LEAD Labor Market Re-port and talked to students in greater depth about employability skills needed in any field of work. Students interacted with questions from Lopez and Salaiz via chat and breakout sessions. They shared ways to sharpen their communication skills.

Plans are to continue the virtual mentoring program in the fall. If you are interested in participating as a mentor, please contact RGV LEAD at egroff@rgvlead.org.
