Public/Private Venture's Making the Most of Youth Mentoring: A Guide for Funders

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On July 31, 2012 (EST)

PPV released its final publication, Making the Most of Youth Mentoring: A Guide for Funders. The mentoring field has grown and diversified immensely since P/PV's landmark 1995 random-assignment study of community-based mentoring. There are now thousands of mentoring programs, as well as many multi-service initiatives that incorporate elements of mentoring, across the country. With support from The Pinkerton Foundation, P/PV summarized key research in the mentoring field to help funders invest their mentoring resources where they can have the most impact. The resulting guide outlines: tips for determining which organizations have the capacity to implement strong mentoring programs; tips for recognizing high-quality mentoring programs; and tips for making the most of six common approaches (community-based mentoring, school-based mentoring, group or team mentoring, cross-age peer mentoring, e-mentoring, and paid mentoring).

Condensed Curriculum International, est 1993 in association with Pearson Education has online healthcare courses for national certification by students. College is not for everyone! Taking one of these courses while in high school reduces the dropout rate dramatically. Jobs are plentiful in the healthcare field. Sidney B. Gilman, Reg.Pharm. President Link:
