Evaluating and Designing Mentoring Programs
Workshops and Training Sessions Designed to Developing and Maintaing a Successful Mentoring Program

PRESENTED BY:

Mentoring is not just a concept, it has proven to be a very successful mechanism used as a preventative measure or reactionary tool to help guide the lives of students and aspiring business executives. As a former mentee, awarded the Mentor of the Year Honor at Tarrant County College, a current mentor, and having helped build a successful mentoring program, the benefits of mentoring are endless and overwhelmingly positive. Therefore, I would be honored to work with you and your organization to development a new or restructure your current mentoring program. Mentoring has an extensive tradition and history, which can be traced back roughly 5,000 years to the continent of Africa. During this period, the elders in the villages and communities acted as mentors providing spiritual, intellectual, and physical development to the young (Carr, 1999). Their primary role as mentors was to help guide the young to become efficient members of their communities, providing a supportive role to the parents of these young adults. Perhaps, it is from instances of this nature we have adopted the common phrase or principle, it takes a village to raise a child. However, Salintri (2005) and Terrell and Wright (1998) posit mentoring became an increased retention and academic improvement tool in the 1980s. Research reinforces the need for strong, meaningful relationships between a mentor and mentee as critical to helping a mentee adjust socially and academically to higher education. Additionally, Lester and Johnson (1981) suggest mentoring is usually a learning relationship between two individuals; it is one-one in nature. The main purpose is to model the behaviors of the younger person to match that of the older person, in an attempt to groom the behaviors of the younger person. Essential to the success of this relationship is the dialogue that occurs between both parties, which allows the relationship to develop and transform into a product outcome for both parties. Mentoring is about developing and maintaining positive relationships; therefore, it may be appropriate for the mentoring program to provide additional training for mentors. Let us work together to create a mentoring program that works for your organization, one that will successful address the needs and goals that desired.
