What is MENTOR?
For more than a quarter century, the Boston-based group has championed mentoring and worked to improve the quality of mentoring programs by conducting research, setting standards, and offering tools. Besides the Christian Science Monitor, the organization has partnered with the White House, the National Basketball Association, and others.
How does MENTOR vet mentoring programs?
Evaluations are based on the latest research into what makes for successful mentoring programs. The evaluations focus on specific aspects of mentor recruitment, screening, training, matching, monitoring and support, and closure. See full checklist (pdf).
