HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:

This guide provides modules and activities to help program managers orient mentees to a mentoring program, with an emphasis on youth safety protocols (including confidentiality and child abuse reporting) and supporting the personal growth of young people through strategies like goal-setting. It includes information about how to build a community of caring, institute safety precautions, design and implement a mentee training, and teach and model relationship skills.

This guide is applicable to many different types of mentoring programs, though it does include information primarily for formal, structured mentoring programs. It includes information about tailoring mentee orientations and activities to the developmental needs of youth of different ages.

This guide was developed based on a book written by Barbara Webster, entitled Get Real. Get a Mentor. How You Can Get Where You Want To Go With the Help of a Mentor. It was created by the Evaluation, Management, and Training (EMT) Group, with funding from the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, as a part of the Mentoring Plus Workshop Series.
