Mentor recruitment is the process of promoting your mentoring initiative to potential mentors. It involves creating a strategy to attract participants (mentors) who can help guide mentees. The success of your mentoring initiative relies significantly on the quality of your mentors. Join us as we uncover different strategies to recruit mentors, both adults and teens, to your mentorship initiative.

During her last secondment Caroline’s main area of focus was mentoring, including supporting the Alberta Mentoring Partnership and setting up a Corporate Mentoring initiative at Alberta Education. For the last five years, Caroline has been a Big Sister and learned about mentoring from the ‘inside’.
