MENTOR and Mass Mentoring Partnership are pleased to make available a comprehensive tool kit entitled: How to Build a Successful Mentoring Program Using the Elements of Effective Practice™. The recently designed tool kit offers step-by-step instructions that new and established programs can follow to implement the Elements of Effective Practice.
In addition, the tool kit offers nearly 100 references to additional resources and includes a “Checklist of Program Progress” for each of the four main components. A CD with more than 160 customizable tools and templates is also available.
MENTOR developed the tool kit through a generous grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. Visit MENTOR to download the complete toolkit.
