Mobius, Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership, envisions a future in which every young person in Vermont who would benefit from having a mentor has one. In order to achieve this goal, we have collaborated with our funding partners to create the Vermont Mentoring Grants. With funding support from The Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children, the A.D. Henderson Foundation, and the Vermont Department for Children and Families, Mobius strives to help create and establish new adult-to-youth mentoring programs, while also supporting and enhancing the quality of existing mentoring programs. We support this critical work by making grants and providing technical assistance, with the ultimate goal of sustainably increasing the quality and quantity of mentoring matches statewide.

To date, for the 2016-2017 Vermont Mentoring Grants funding cycle, Mobius has awarded 32 grants, four National Mentoring Summit scholarships, and also pledged additional funding to support the use of the full Vermont Mentoring Surveys. In total, Mobius has awarded or pledged $307,315 in funding to support adult-to-youth mentoring programs throughout the state. This funding will support 101 new and existing program sites, and more than 1,800 adult-to-youth mentor pairs in communities across Vermont.  Additionally, there is $45,080 in grant funding available during the 2016-2017 Vermont Mentoring Grant year that can still be awarded toward New Program Planning Grants and Implementation Grants.
