What is Mentoring?

  • NCMI defines mentoring as a structured, one-to-one relationship or partnership that focuses on the needs of the mentoring participants (mentor, mentee and parent/guardian).  The mentoring bond fosters a caring and supportive relationship between the mentor, the mentee, the parent/guardian and the mentoring program staff.  The mentoring relationship encourages the mentoring participants to develop their fullest potential and to create a vision for their future.  Lastly, the mentoring relationship and bond embraces the family unit by providing wrap-around services that encompass the well-being and nurturing of parental/familial relationships.
