  • E-Mentoring, also known as online mentoring, describes a mentoring relationship conducted via the Internet. It's goals are similar to face-to-face mentoring: establishing a trusting, positive relationship between a caring adult mentor and a young person. E-Mentoring also helps young people deepen their understanding of the positive potential of online culture and high-tech communications. Most online mentoring programs use e-mail while some use Web-based programs or special communications software available only to those involved in the program. While most E-Mentoring involves a one-to-one relationship similar to traditional mentoring relationships, some programs use a group-to-group mentoring format, such as group of professional engineers advising a classroom of students.

  • Elements of Effective Practice - These Elements of Effective Practice present program policies and practices that have proven effective in a wide range of existing mentoring settings. The brochure is available to any individual or organization that wants to develop, operate, volunteer in or fund a mentoring program. Designed and endorsed by the National Mentoring Partnership, The Vermont Mentoring Partnership has adopted these elements as their Quality Assurance Standards.
     
  • Weekly Mentoring Activity Ideas for a Year - A great idea tool for Mentors.
