Mentoring Practices Survey
Mentor Washington’s annual Mentoring Practices Survey gathers information about the prevalence of mentoring in Washington and the level of implementation of the best practices for youth mentoring. Programs that complete the survey receive a confidential report of their responses and a copy of anonymous data tracking statewide responses. This means that programs are able to track change over time and compare their implementation to other programs. MW uses the results to direct our annual trainings and inform evaluation. Whether your organization is large or small, the survey is an excellent tool for you to utilize to track, monitor, and sustain quality mentoring.
“…[T]he survey is excellent. We’re implementing a first year mentoring program here in Monroe and the survey really reaffirmed the policies and procedures we have in place, and also highlighted a few closure practices that we need to get in writing right away … Thank you for all you do!”
