Group Mentoring: Models and Practices

February 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Thu, Feb 21, 2019 1:00 PM – 2:15 PM EST

Group mentoring has become increasingly popular within youth serving programs, in part because agencies can serve more mentees with fewer mentors. Yet, with few official guidelines, many organizations struggle to understand what group mentoring is, and how to integrate actual “mentoring” into their efforts. This webinar will explore several successful group mentoring models that have shown to be successful, including 3 mentors to 10 mentees (3:10), 2 mentors to six mentees (2:6), and a third method that provides both 1:1 and group mentoring to their mentees. Panelists will focus on how their particular program model was chosen and how they emphasize relationship building within the group setting.

Included in this workshop will be discussions on curriculum development and conducting sharing exercises. Attendees will leave this session with numerous ideas and resources that will help them to enhance their group mentoring efforts. This webinar is part of the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series, which is funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through the National Mentoring Resource Center and facilitated in partnership with MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. These webinars would not be possible without the planning team, which includes The Governor’s Prevention Partnership, Memphis Grizzlies Foundation, MENTOR Illinois, MENTOR Independence Region, Indiana Mentoring Partnership, Mentor Colorado, and MENTOR Vermont.
