YouthBuild adds group mentoring to start matches

Group Mentoring has been integrated into the Cycle 2 YouthBuild Mentoring Model (one-on-one match period). National Mentoring Alliance (NMA) programs provide a full fifteen months of mentoring to YouthBuild participants, using an innovative approach which taps into the natural assets of the youth and community. By employing group mentoring activities to support one-on-one matches, NMA programs are able to find willing adult male volunteers more easily, build trust between mentors and mentees more quickly, and are able to sustain longer and more effective mentoring relationships.
