Join us for two webinars on the groundbreaking Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program!
The recently completed evaluation of the Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program (MEDP) offered a fascinating look at how mentoring programs can think about making targeted enhancements to their services and improve the quality and consistency of mentoring that youth receive. Ten collaborative partnerships of mentoring programs around the country each attempted, via an OJJDP grant, to develop and implement enhancements to their “business as usual” services that would allow mentors to be better advocates and teachers. The project offers a great set of case studies in how mentoring programs can think about making enhancements like this and the impact they might expect to see from these types of program improvement efforts. We are lucky to have the research team from the American Institutes for Research joining us for two webinars about the project, the first focused on implementation and how these enhancements influenced the work of mentors and the second on the impact that these enhancements had on relationship and youth outcomes.
You can learn more about each webinar and register for each below. If you are interested in learning about the art of program improvement, how mentors can be more intentional in the support they provide, or how programs can measure the impact of new ideas, you are sure to learn a lot from these two events. So please register below and join us for these unique learning opportunities!
Lessons Learned from the Implementation of the Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program

This first MEDP webinar focuses on how programs determined what to enhance and how they implemented these enhanced services. The webinar will offer plenty of lessons learned and food for thought for any mentoring program thinking about how to improve their services over "business as usual."
Outcomes and Findings from the Mentoring Enhancement Demonstration Program

This second webinar about the project highlights the programmatic and youth outcomes that resulted from this project at 10 sites across the country. Please join the research team behind the evaluation to learn about the impact that these advocacy and teaching enhancements had on the work of mentors and the outcomes for their mentees.
