Mentor Recruitment

Whether you're just starting a mentoring initiative or are 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.

We're taking on the challenge of mentor recruitment post-pandemic, 
but we need your help.

In a recent MENTOR New York poll, 79% of programs reported that they were not recruiting enough new mentors to sustain their programs. To tackle this critical issue, we're conducting research that explores how to increase the number of volunteer mentors throughout New York State.

Findings will allow us to develop stronger, data-informed recruitment practices that can be leveraged by the whole mentoring movement. If you're a program leader, please take a few minutes to answer our six-question survey. We can't do this work without you!
