NOMINATE OUTSTANDING MENTORS


The Iowa Excellence in Mentoring Awards honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to expanding quality mentoring relationships for young people in Iowa through service as a mentor.
Iowa Mentoring Partnership certified programs may nominate individuals who have served as a mentor for at least two years. Qualified nominees possess a compelling mentoring story that illustrates how positive experiences alter the life of a young person for the better.
Nomination forms for the 2018 awards are due January 16, 2018.

MENTOR RECRUITMENT


NBC News is promoting mentoring on air and in social media with a call to action to become a mentor. They will be driving viewers to search for mentoring programs on the national database, the Mentoring Connector.  Make sure that your program will show up when potential mentors search for a volunteer opportunity by registering your program on the Mentoring Connector. Programs currently registered should respond to requests for information in a timely fashion as best practice in volunteer management.

 

NATIONAL MENTORING MONTH JANUARY 2018


THANK YOUR MENTOR  Encourage community leaders, board members, mentees, and mentors to join the #ThankYourMentor campaign and show appreciation for someone whose guidance is valued. These stories can inspire others to mentor in real life!  Simply take a picture or video with a message about your mentor and then share on social media.

Check out the National Mentoring Month website for a toolkit full of additional ideas!

RESEARCH


FIVE FACTORS TO EXPLAIN RESISTANCE TO EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE
"As mentoring continues to expand, there is an urgent need for a more integrated and accelerated effort to strategically enhance not only the production but also the update of evidence-based practices."


An interesting look at the disconnect between research and practice.
