mentoring for youth
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO
Mentors don’t have to create any lesson plans. Weekly Mentor Activity Guides provide step-by-step instructions and are written to include one or more of the How To guides in The MANUAL TO MANHOOD or The GIRL'S GUIDE TO CONQUERING LIFE books. Upon completion of each Activity Guide level, mentors can choose to participate in a Teaching and Learning Outcomes Impact Study to gather data about the club member's attendance, discipline, academic growth, and engagement.
Each club member receives a CLUB KIT packed with stuff young people actually want. Guy's CLUB KITS include a sized t-shirt, wristband, lanyard, stickers, lapel pin, patch, pen, and a signed copy of the The MANUAL TO MANHOOD book. Girl's Club Kits include a sized t-shirt, hair band, journal, color pencils, stickers, pen, and signed copy of The GIRL'S GUIDE TO CONQUERING LIFE book. Mentor's CLUB KITS also including access to Mentor Activity Guides and quarterly Teaching & Learning Outcomes Impact Studies designed to track the progress and growth of the Club.
For each club, the 1M Mentoring Foundation provides access to quarterly Teaching & Learning Outcomes Impact Studies. Impact Studies help mentors and program leaders assess the progress and growth of the club’s mentees towards achieving their personal, academic, behavior, and school attendance goals.
