National Mentoring Resource Center - resource for Vermont mentoring programsStarting in the Fall of 2014, Mobius has partnered with MENTOR to offer mentoring programs in Vermont the opportunity to apply for individualized program assistance through the National Mentoring Resource Center at no cost to them or their agencies. This program assistance is provided by local experienced mentoring coordinators and experts in the field. To learn more, visit the National Mentoring Resource Center page.

MENTOR also maintains the nationally renowned  Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™, now in its third edition.  This keystone publication on mentoring standards includes the latest research and practice wisdom available, and was compiled under the leadership of Dr. Jean Rhodes of the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and Dr. Janis Kupersmidt of innovation Research & Training.  Mobius, the Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children, the A.D. Henderson Foundation, and the State of Vermont use this important tool to guide the annual development of the Vermont Core Standards for Mentoring.
