Download 10 Free Tools for Mentoring

5/9/2007:   The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota and the Search Institute have collaborated to create free downloadable tools to support and strengthen relationships between mentors and mentees.

The 10 tools were developed through interviews and group discussions with mentoring professionals from across Minnesota. The tools--Microsoft Word documents provided in read-only format--are designed to offer new ideas and insights for mentors and mentor program staff to enhance relationships with teens, as well as help them recruit more community members to support young people.

The tool topics include:
  • mentoring adolescents: specific training needs
  • building trust and attachment with mentees,
  • setting mentoring boundaries, and
  • the influence of culture on mentoring relationships.
Printed copies of the tools are available by calling 877/343-0300.
