Program Types

 

Adult-to-Youth, 1:1, Long-term, Community-Based

In this type of program, an adult meets one on one with a mentee after school or work hours, and participates in activities together out in the community.  The main purpose is to establish a long-term relationship, to support and to positively influence the life of the mentee.

 

Adult-to-Youth, 1:1, Long-term, School-Based

In this type of program, an adult meets one on one with a mentee before, during, or immediately after school hours and participates in supervised activities together at the mentee’s school.  The main purpose is to establish a long-term relationship, to support and to positively influence the life of the mentee.

 

Adult-to-Youth, 1:1, Long-term, Site-Based/Non-School

In this type of program, an adult meets one on one with a mentee after school hours, and participates in activities together at a supervised site such as a youth center.  The main purpose is to establish a long-term relationship, to support and to positively influence the life of the mentee.

 

Adult-to-Youth, Group Mentoring

In this type of program, mentees are placed in groups with one or more adults.  Adults may act as a mentor for multiple mentees or meet with a single mentee in a group with other mentor pairs.  Adults may meet with mentees in small, time-limited groups or on a long-term and regular basis.  These groups are typically supervised and are meant to strengthen mentees’ ties with positive adult role models.

 

Adult-to-Youth, E-Mentoring

In this type of program, an adult communicates on-line, one on one with a mentee for the purpose of establishing a long-term relationship and to support and positively influence the life of the mentee.  As with other program types, program coordinators play a critical role in the success of the e-mentoring program and receive specialized training to assure quality supervision and oversight.

 

Adult-to-Adult

In this type of program, an adult is paired with another adult typically for the purpose of addressing a specific need and supporting a particular goal.

 

Peer-to-Peer

In this type of program, caring youth are paired with other, typically younger, youth for the purpose of establishing a relationship and providing guidance, assistance and support.  Peer mentoring usually occurs in educational settings, either consisting of one-on-one relationships or group mentoring.  Peer mentoring is often a strategy to assist youth in making positive life choices.
