Mentors and Students in the Workplace. Workplace Mentorship.
Evenson, Jill S.
Drawing from the experiences of 30 students and their mentors in 15 programs, this pamphlet offers descriptions of mentorships, or experience-based workplace learning to help high school students make the transition from school to work. Workplace mentorship is defined. Examples are then offered of the various types of activities at work sites that correspond to possible learning experiences. For students, these include learning about the world of work, gaining in knowledge about themselves, demonstrating gains in work maturity, improving communications skills, and having an opportunity to apply basic skills in real situations. Next, the type of persons interested in mentorship and desirable qualities of mentors are considered. The pamphlet concludes with a summary of suggestions from mentors and program staff for encouraging mentorship. (YLB)
