National Mentoring Resource Center Overview
Launched in January 2014, the National Mentoring Resource Center is a comprehensive and reliable resource for mentoring tools, program and training materials, as well as access to no-cost training and technical assistance. While accessible to the general public, the primary audience for the National Mentoring Resource Center are youth mentoring practitioners looking for support in more deeply incorporating evidence-based practices to support positive youth outcomes. In the fall of 2013, MENTOR analyzed needs and trends in the field across a broad array of stakeholders, including national organizations, MENTOR’s network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships, and grassroots service providers. This analysis informed the initial development of the National Mentoring Resource Center. Ongoing use and feedback of this resource will help inform future additions and revisions. You can share your thoughts about how the Center can be most effective to the field on our Feedback page.
