Resources and Recommendations for the COVID-19 Pandemic
With Governor Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, MENTOR Washington supports the suspension of all in-person mentoring activities. We realize this is a difficult time for everyone and especially encourage mentoring programs to use this time to support staff and take recommended actions to slow the spread of coronavirus so that we avoid putting strain on our medical system and protect those who are most vulnerable.
We realize that these school and mentoring program closings deprive youth of the consistency of their meetings with their mentors and that this will be difficult for both mentors and mentees. We’ve compiled a list of alternative options for maintaining contact between mentors and mentees, resources about supporting youth mental health during this time, and other resources to support families impacted by these program closures. We will continue to add to this list as we develop further resources.
MENTOR Washington promotes, supports, and expands quality mentoring that fosters positive youth development, academic success, and job and career readiness.
