Business Case for Supporting Mentoring

This PDF report titled "Building critical social infrastructure: The business case for expanding support for school based mentoring in Australia" is focused on school-based mentoring in Australia yet could be used by any city in the US to build support for school-based and non-school mentoring strategies.

The National Youth Mentoring Benchmarks, starting on page 30 of the report, can be used by any mentoring organization as standards of excellence to shoot for.

During the Nov. 4 Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference in Chicago, Dr. Clara Carter, former Director of Training for the Maryland Mentoring Partnership, will host a workshop focusing on "The Elements of Effective Practice" shared by MENTOR, the National Mentoring Partnership.

If you're building or trying to sustain a mentoring strategy you are encouraged to attend the conference and this workshop.
