Defining Mentoring
  • Mentoring is a structured and trusting
    relationship that brings young people together
    with caring individuals who offer guidance,
    support and encouragement aimed at developing the
    competence and character of the mentee.
  • (National Mentoring Partnership)

Defining Mentoring
  • Responsible mentoring can take many forms
  • Traditional mentoring (one adult to one young
    person)
  • Group mentoring (one adult to up to four young
    people)
  • Team mentoring (several adults working with
    small groups of young people, in which the adult
    to youth ratio is not greater than 14)
  • Peer mentoring (caring youth mentoring other
    youth)
  • E-mentoring (mentoring via e-mail and the
    internet)
