Building Relationships

Making the Most of Mentoring

Mentoring is a two-way street and many mentors say they get just as much out of it as they put into it.  But how can we ensure that mentees get the most out of mentoring?  TMP has an entire training called Making the Most of Mentoring that provides middle and high school students with tools to define goals, determine how others could support their goals, assess their network of connections and reach out for help.  


This activity card builds on these principals with 5 tips to help young people build their social networks.  It also includes a goal-mapping exercise on the back to encourage youth of all ages to consider how people in their lives can help them achieve both short- and long-term goals.
