Youth Mentoring

There are three types of mentoring.

One-on-one Mentoring.

While mentoring has great promise for improving healthy decision making on the part of youth, inconsistent or problematic mentoring relationships are likely to do more harm than good (Rhodes, 2005). Mentoring early adolescent girls deemed at risk can be challenging since they often feel overwhelmed with relationship issues among their family and friends. The Young Women Leaders Program at the University of Virginia offers a promising model for providing middle school girls with the support they need through a combination of one-on-one and group time that includes both U.S. Department of Education Q Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools Mentoring Resource Center 2 CASE STUDY relationship development and skill-building. The service-learning component for mentors, with its focus on adolescent development and best practices in mentoring, makes for an intensive, highly supportive approach to mentoring for both mentees and mentors and helps the pairs maintain and deepen their relationships.

Distance Mentoring.

Distance mentors are increasingly common in nursing education and practice, particularly when the mentee is not geographically mobile and there are no available local mentors with relevant expertise. The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of nurses who worked with distance mentors for practice, research, or leadership development. We recruited a convenience sample to complete an on-line survey through professional organizations and schools of nursing. The responses from 67 nurses indicate that distance mentoring is used by clinicians, doctoral students, junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and administrators. Distance mentors are sought when a mentee’s needs require specific areas of mentor expertise, no such match exists at the mentee’s home institution, and the mentee is not geographically mobile. Most survey participants were satisfied with their mentoring experience and reported significant scholarly productivity.

Group Mentoring.

Group Mentoring opens avenues for you to learn more. You come across new facts about the topic. Sometimes you might have skipped learning some important aspect of a topic which another student or person may have grasped while studying the same topic. When you discuss it with your friend, you also learn all these areas which you have omitted during your study or another discussion. Sometimes you may have some difficulties in learning a topic, when you discuss it; it becomes easier for you to understand the topic with clarity.
