ForeverHBCU: Expanding the World of Quality Mentoring

ForeverHBCU Joins State Mentoring Partnerships

State Mentoring Partnerships

The backbone of mentoring’s infrastructure is a growing network of state Mentoring Partnerships that MENTOR has helped to build and support. State Mentoring Partnerships serve a unique role as a clearinghouse for information and resources, providing the critical link between MENTOR’s national efforts and the local organizations that foster quality mentoring relationships. Each of these state Mentoring Partnerships works with a wide range of programs within their state to:

  • Increase the number of young people with mentors in the state;
  • Increase resources in the state dedicated to mentoring;
  • Promote quality standards for mentoring programs;
  • Expand mentoring programming and opportunities tailored to the needs and circumstances of young people.

By focusing on problem-solving, state Mentoring Partnerships have developed solid, field-tested solutions to some of the mentoring movement’s greatest challenges.
