Center for Evidenced Based Mentoring
The Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring is a collaboration between MENTOR and the University of Massachusetts-Boston led by leading mentoring researcher Dr. Jean Rhodes. The goal of the Center is to advance both the production and uptake of evidence-based practice in the field of youth mentoring. The Center accomplishes this goal through the production of research, the facilitation of collaborations, and the dissemination of evidence-based resources.

National Bullying Prevention Center
Bullying touches so many lives. It often inspires the generous spirit in people who want to make a difference, support the cause, and change something that has happened to too many for too long. Every day, students, parents, schools, and community members ask us, “What can I do to help?” Every contribution — whether it’s hosting a community event, standing up for someone, or giving a donation to an organization that addresses bullying — makes a difference and changes lives.

LOOKING FOR A MENTOR?
Are you a parent, guardian, teacher, or caring adult to a young person who you feel could benefit from a mentor? Mentors are supportive individuals who build relationships with young people by offering them guidance, support, and encouragement to help cultivate positive and healthy development – many of the same things you do. Mentors are not meant to replace parents, guardians, or teachers, or to play the role of disciplinarians or decision makers. Rather, they become part of a team of caring adults to that young person. Mentors can help encourage positive choices, provide high self-esteem, support academic achievement and introduce new ideas.
