Mentor Recruitment

Whether you're just starting a mentoring initiative or expanding your program's services, finding volunteer mentors can be tough. Here, you'll find innovative tips and resources to help you recruit and retain mentors—and ensure quality matches for your mentees.

Taking on the challenge of mentor recruitment

In a December 2022 MENTOR New York poll, 79% of responders reported that they were not recruiting enough new mentors to sustain their mentoring programs. 

To tackle this critical issue, we surveyed program leaders, current mentors, and prospective mentors to explore how we can increase the number of volunteers throughout New York State. Findings will allow us to develop stronger, data-informed recruitment practices that can be leveraged by the whole mentoring movement.
