The National Mentoring Resource Center provides free technical assistance to youth mentoring programs around their individual needs and the improved implementation of specific mentoring practices. Requests are now submitted through OJJDP's centralized technical assistance site, TTA360.
Wondering whether technical assistance might improve your mentoring program?
- Are you a new mentoring organization in need of program support for mentor recruitment and retention?
- Does your program want to learn mentoring best practices for managing mentoring relationships or monitoring matches?
- Are you an organization that needs help with designing a mentor-mentee evaluation or, develop a logic model for a grant application?
- Has your program read the latest mentoring research on working with youth in foster care?
Some recent examples of technical assistance provided to mentoring programs includes: the development of and revision of mentoring training materials; guidance and consultation on mentor recruitment plans and strategies; analysis of mentor screening processes; and analysis of match support processes and consultation on strategies for improvement.
