Youth Workplace Mentoring Program Toolkits for Mentoring Organizations and Businesses
Working with business, non-profit, and government partners across Alberta, the Alberta Mentoring Partnership developed the following toolkits to help mentoring organizations recruit new volunteer mentors through corporate mentoring partnerships.
Youth Workplace Mentoring or a Corporate Mentoring Partnership is a relationship between a mentoring organization and a business that results in the creation of a Youth Workplace Mentoring Program between employees and kids.
The program offers mentoring organizations the opportunity to recruit employees as volunteer mentors, and gives businesses a means to engage employees and build the corporate brand while giving back to the community.
