The Mentoring Program Model that follows is the result of a more formalized approach to designing a mentoring program. The purpose for providing this model is to offer a guideline to others for your work in developing or refining your own mentoring program. The program design was the result of collaboration among administration, teachers, and the author, Ami Hicks, whose research for her Master's Degree was in mentoring. The program became the foundation for mentoring that was successfully conducted over many years in a large suburban high school. Ami Hicks, was the Mentor Program Coordinator.
This is a mentor program that was proved successful for its many participants. The model is research-based and field tested. It is the kind of approach that is endorsed by MLRN, so we recommend this structure to you.
