Kids and youth thrive when they have caring and supportive adults in their lives, and mentoring offers an outstanding way to foster such relationships. Research shows that quality mentoring relationships produce positive results in the lives of mentees, including improving school attendance rates and increasing the child’s chances for future success. January is National Mentoring Month, and throughout the month Indiana Youth Institute will celebrate individuals and programs providing quality mentoring relationships to young people, especially at-risk youth. Join your partners at MENTOR Indiana and MENTOR Maryland for a discussion about emerging research and innovative practices to strengthen your local mentoring initiatives and relationships.
Webinar attendees will: • learn how the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™ serve as a cornerstone for quality innovation; • explore new models of youth mentoring that respond to the current and dynamic needs of youth; • examine research elated to youth-centric mentoring that celebrates diverse backgrounds of mentees; • discover practical and applicable resources that can be implemented right away to inform your local mentoring efforts.
If you are launching a new mentoring program, or if you are seeking to innovative within your existing work, this webinar is for you!
