Mentor recruitment is the number one challenge reported by programs, especially post-pandemic. The Mentoring Partnership partnered with Christopher Margadonna, Senior Director of Training & Partnerships at MENTOR Rhode Island, to share some tips and strategies for volunteer outreach and onboarding.

Check out this recording of our May 2023 LENS Meeting (Learning, Engaging, Networking and Sharing) to learn more about tools and strategies needed to:

  • Define a targeted recruitment audience for potential mentors.
  • Recruit appropriate mentors by realistically describing the program’s aims and expectations.
  • Develop a concise mentor recruitment message.
