Guide for Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating a Mentoring Program. Hand in Hand: Mentoring Young Women. Book 1.
Faddis, Bonnie; And Others
This document is one of three products developed as part of a 2-year project designed to increase the motivation of minority young women to pursue occupations and careers that will be in demand in the future. It is hoped that these products will help schools and businesses to cooperate in conducting a mentoring program. It provides guidelines for setting up a program and for establishing an active partnership between schools and businesses. It also includes a leader's guide for setting up one type of mentoring program. In addition to suggesting procedures for initiating, conducting, and evaluating mentoring programs, this guide includes case studies of two existing and flourishing mentoring programs. It is designed to be an easy-to-use reference resource for businesses, schools, or community agencies that want to initiate mentoring programs. Chapter 1 presents the eight steps in developing a mentoring program. Chapter 2 provides workshop leaders with an introduction to conducting mentor training, and chapter 3 contains a set of mentor training activities. Chapter 4 includes the case studies of two mentoring programs: The Registry in Seattle, Washington and the Directions' Career Mentorship Program in San Francisco, California. Appendices contain supplemental information for trainers and fliers, and forms from the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory and the two mentoring programs described in the case studies. (NB)
