Support and Materials for Mentoring Programs

This page is designed to list the services Mobius provides to mentoring programs and to share training materials, quality standards, templates and other resources among all of the Vermont mentoring programs. If you’re interested in learning more about any of these services, please email Chad and Benji at info@mobiusmentors.org.

 

Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series

Our national partners at MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership facilitate the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series (CMWS), a series of monthly online trainings led by national experts in the field.  Past training topics have included male mentor recruitment, racial and cultural diversity, and using research to leverage meaningful outcome data.  All webinars are free to join, and are also recorded and posted online.  To learn more and to sign up for upcoming webinars, or to view past webinars, please visit the CMWS page on the MENTOR website.

 

Consultation and Technical Support

Mobius is excited to offer support and guidance to new and existing mentoring programs around the state.  We can help walk you through the ins and outs of starting and managing a mentoring program, and provide advice on recruiting volunteers and reaching out to the media and potential funders.

 

Public Awareness and Recruitment

Mobius offers a variety of opportunities for spreading the word about mentoring to a larger audience.  Each month we publish Vermont’s Mentoring Newsletter, a statewide newsletter that includes content from mentoring programs across the state.  We help recruit new volunteers through our statewide directory of mentoring programs, and we use our Facebook and Twitter pages to spread local mentoring opportunities, stories and events to a wider audience.  We also promote mentoring stories to media outlets throughout the state.

 

Vermont Program Quality Standards

Drawing from MENTOR’s nationally renowned Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™, as well as the experience of local mentoring programs, the Vermont Core Standards are an annual set of mentoring standards that lay out the foundation for best practices for mentoring in Vermont.
