High School Teen Mentoring Handbook
This High School Teen Mentoring Handbook was developed as a result of a four-year pilot program of Alberta Advanced Education, in partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton and Area, and supported by Alberta Education. During this pilot, high school students met one-to-one with younger students, one hour a week for the school term. The goal of these sessions was for high school mentors and their mentees to work together to identify strengths and interests, increase career awareness, and begin identifying post-secondary options.
There are two additional resources to support this Handbook that provide ideas and activities for career exploration:
This framework includes:
- an overview of possible approaches and models of school-based mentoring relationships
- an outline of benefits for different models of mentoring
- a list of resources to support in-school mentoring relationships
- sample templates for planning a school-based mentoring initiative.
