MENTOR Launches Online After-School Program Clearinghouse

MENTOR/National Mentoring Partnership recently launched the After-School Program Clearinghouse at The clearinghouse is designed to provide after-school coordinators with the tools and resources they need to add a mentoring component to their programs. It also provides resources on how to implement, manage and strengthen after-school programs. Resources are formatted to coincide with the categories in the Elements of Effective Practice (Program Design and Planning, Management, Operations and Evaluation). Other features, many of which are in Word and PDF formats include: Community Mentoring for Adolescent Development (CMAD) manual which provides extensive content for preparing mentors to work with adolescents; Web sites of interest to after-school programs and customizable sample tools and templates developed by MENTOR’s State and Local Mentoring Partnerships. The After-School Program Clearinghouse was funded by a generous grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
