Peer Mentoring Program Model

Mentoring program

Child and youth mentoring services have had varying levels of success rates in the lives of young people, in which mentoring touches. Mentoring requires a relationship of coaching, counseling, and caring in order for the mentor and mentee to grow and develop together. The success rates of mentoring have been shown to vary. Such variables include, the age demographics and gender of the children in which mentoring was introduced, the duration and contact of the relationship between the child and mentor and the commonalities which are shared between the child and the mentor. The structure of the mentoring program also plays a pivotal role in the success of the matches, which are made. Furthermore, by having a mentorship program in place with youth and children, the positive effects in the long term, far outweighed the impact than having no mentorship program in place (Hayley, 2010).

A successful relationship of mentoring has to progress through six different stages:

The appraisal of the scenario.

The phase of identification and filtering

The phase of selection, recruitment, and association

The phase of maintenance and nourishment

The phase of separation

The phase of colleagueship

The stage that is significant for this research project is the nourishment and maintenance phase. This phase is the basic foundation of the mentor-mentee relationship. It is during this phase that the mentor demonstrates leadership that will impact the mentor-mentee relationship. Mentoring is not analogous to advising, although the two may share commonalities.
