What's Working?: Tools for Evaluating Your Mentoring Program PDF
Assess your mentoring program's goals and progress with this functional resource. Based on tools developed by Search Institute to evaluate the Schools Plus Mentoring Program (a partnership between Pillsbury and Big Brothers Big Sisters), What's Working? includes surveys, focus group questions, and interview protocols that allow you to gather information from mentors, mentees, parents, and teachers/other adults. It is designed to be used "post-only" (either partway through or at the end of a program) to measure the perceived impact on the youth and mentors involved. You'll be able to assess your program's goals beyond simply how many people are involved, how long matches between mentors and mentees last, and so on. What's Working? also points out the powerful connections between mentoring programs and the asset categories.

Best use: By youth and community organizations or any group with any knowledge level of the Developmental Assets who wish to evaluate their mentoring program.
