Unpacking the Mentoring Gap

December 13, 2023 from 1pm to 2pm
Eastern Time (UTC-05:00)
Unpacking the Mentoring Gap

Mentor Canada and MENTOR (USA) are dedicated to closing the Mentoring Gap.

But how do we define the Mentoring Gap? What does research across both nations reveal about it and about how to tackle it?

Join Véronique Church-Duplessis, director of research and evaluation (Mentor Canada) and Mike Garringer, senior director of research and quality (MENTOR) for a conversation which will take a closer look at the multiple dimensions of the mentoring gaps, such as the lack of access to the right mentors at the right time, and about strategies to better meet young people’s complex mentoring needs.
