Looking for help?
You've come to the right place.
MENTOR Minnesota is here to provide or connect you with the support your need to start, maintain, and sustain quality mentoring initiatives. Here are some ways we can help:
The National Mentoring Resource Center (NMRC) provides support to individual programs based on their needs. Programs can access up to 50 hours of no-cost technical assistance (TA) by experts in the field.
To take advantage of this opportunity, fill out a short Technical Assistance Request for your program on the NMRC website. The NMRC sends your request to the closest mentoring partnership where they will review your application, complete an exploratory phone call, and begin working with you on your program’s needs.
Some recent examples of technical assistance provided to mentoring programs include:
- Development and revision of mentoring training materials
- Guidance and consultation on mentor recruitment plans and strategies
- Analysis of mentor screening processes
- Analysis of match support processes
- In-depth evaluation planning
Be sure to check out the NMRC website for more information and to apply.
Open Office Hours and Individual Consultation
MENTOR Minnesota offers individual consultation to mentoring programs to help with any aspect of their program. We would love to meet with you to get to know your unique mentoring program, discuss your program’s needs, and figure out how we might best be able to partner with you to provide you with the help you need.
Our virtual open office hours are an opportunity for program staff from all types of programs at any level of expertise to dedicate work time towards specific projects that address current program needs and areas that need attention. Office hours cannot take the place of more dedicated time and support through an NMRC technical assistance project, but it can be a time to decide whether a NMRC TA project is right for you or to get support and resources to prepare you to make some progress on your important projects.
There is no cost to you, just request an appointment using the form below and we will contact you to schedule and confirm.
