How to Choose a Quality Youth Mentoring Program

Our Program Directory is a great place to start when looking for a quality mentoring program. Here are some questions you can ask a program, based on a framework of six core standards of practice instituted by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership:

STANDARD #1: Recruitment

  • Who are the mentors?
  • What are the eligibility requirements?

STANDARD #2: Screening

  • Does the program require mentor candidate background checks, including searching a national criminal records database, along with sex offender and child abuse registries and, when relevant, driving records?
  • Does the program conduct personal interviews with each mentor candidate?
  • Does the program check mentor candidate references?

STANDARD #3: Training

  • Do mentors receive training prior to being matched with a youth?

STANDARD #4: Matching

  • What factors are taken into consideration when matching mentors and mentees?

STANDARD #5: Monitoring and Support

  • Does the program contact mentors, mentees, and parents/guardians on a regular basis to monitor the relationship?
