The National Mentoring Partnership, Inc. (MENTOR) is the unifying champion for expanding quality youth mentoring relationships in the United States. For nearly 25 years, MENTOR has served the mentoring field by providing a public voice, developing and delivering resources to mentoring programs nationwide, and promoting quality for mentoring through standards, cutting-edge research, and state-of-the-art tools. It drives the investment of time and money into high impact mentoring programs through advocacy, influence strategy, and public awareness. When MENTOR was founded, an estimated 300,000 at-risk youth were in structured mentoring relationships. Today, research shows that 4.5 million at-risk youth will have a structured mentoring relationship while they are growing up. Still, research shows that one in three young people will reach adulthood without a mentor.
In 2013, the Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) selected MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership to establish an OJJDP resource center focused solely on mentoring. The National Mentoring Resource Center builds on OJJDP’s history, leadership and investments in quality youth mentoring while harnessing nearly 25 years of experience brought by MENTOR and its network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships. This resource center, launched in November 2014, serves as a comprehensive and reliable resource for mentoring tools and information, as well as program and training materials, and technical assistance. The resources and technical assistance available through the National Mentoring Resource Center are in alignment with the national standards for quality mentoring, The Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™.
