  • Description of Resource:

    The Kinship Mentoring Framework Group Session Facilitator's Guide reflects the lessons learned during the Seventh Generation National Tribal Mentoring Program, a project that used culturally specific mentoring to guide court-involved and at-risk American Indian and Alaska Native youth (ages 10-17) toward healthy lifestyle choices. The Framework's guide was developed to assist facilitators in creating 12 group mentoring sessions (called “moons”) appropriate to a specific tribe and its culture. It is a companion piece to the Seventh Generation National Tribal Mentoring Program Mentor Handbook, which provides guidance on the Seventh Generation approach to one-on-one mentoring.

    Goals:

    To equip program facilitators with a culturally specific group mentoring curriculum that facilitates the building of lasting relationships between tribal youth and caring adult mentors.

    Target Population/Eligibility of Target Sites:

    Programs serving American Indian and Alaska Native youth.

  • Description of Resource:

    This customizable Word document was originally designed for YouthBuild programs with the intention of providing information to parents, caregivers, and other supportive adults about the youth’s new relationship with a volunteer mentor.

The resource is intended to help a program ensure that the other important adults in a mentee’s life are “on board” with the mentoring relationship and ready to support program goals.

    Goals:

    Provide information to parents and other caring adults in a mentee’s life about how they can support the mentoring experience.

    Target Population/Eligibility of Target Sites:

The Mentor's Guide to Youth Purpose

 
  • Description of Resource:

    This resource provides guidance and practical tools for how mentors can nurture and support a young person’s sense of purpose. The guide includes worksheets that mentors can use to reflect on their own sense of purpose and how that can influence the mentoring relationship including through communication strategies, adultism, and by giving space for youth voice.

    Note: Programs may wish to provide support for mentors in making use of this resource, as the content is fairly extensive and mentors may benefit from staff direction and input in how to make use of it most effectively. As noted in the resource, it should be kept in mind that a focus on supporting youth purpose may not be appropriate uniformly for all mentees (e.g., youth dealing with recent experiences of trauma or ongoing sources of stress or adversity as primary concerns).

    Goals:

    To provide mentors with guidance on ways they can support their mentees to explore purpose and find meaning, a sense of self, and ways of giving back to their world.

    Target Population/Eligibility of Target Sites:

    Mentors and mentoring programs.

    Corresponding Elements of Effective Practice:

    Mentor Training, Match Support
