 The Basics
1.Match from the point of view of the youth, and then take intoaccount the volunteer’s preferences.2.The first goal of program supervision is to make sure the mentorand mentee are meeting.3.Active supervision and support from program staff are also keyfor helping the relationships flourish.4.A mentoring relationship that fails to develop, or closes quickly,mayreinforce a child or youth’s negative self-image.
