Transitioning to Post-Graduation Mentoring


Although the bulk of YouthBuild mentoring may happen during the regular YouthBuild program year, the mentoring that happens after the student graduates* from YouthBuild is perhaps most important. It is critical that your site emphasize the importance of matches meeting for the full 15 months, as this keeps mentees’ personal, academic, and career growth going in a positive direction once they leave YouthBuild.

*Obviously some of your students will not have formally graduated by the end of your program cycle. Here “post-graduation” simply refers to the transition out of the regular YouthBuild program.
