A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:

MENTOR Nebraska supports and collaborates with more than 200 mentoring programs across Nebraska. Our work is research-based with the ultimate vision to bring about systemic changes that will allow mentoring programs to serve more youth with higher quality services. This is achieved through advocacy efforts, collecting, and analyzing data, training mentors and mentoring professionals, and providing no-cost consultation to mentoring programs.

Karmen Thompson, Executive Director of Big Pals-Little Pal of Greater Columbus, says MENTOR Nebraska has helped her mentoring program in numerous ways. “MENTOR Nebraska has been a wonderful tool for Big Pals-Little Pals," said Karmen. "Because of our partnership with MENTOR Nebraska, we have implemented the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring. This has helped us build a strong foundation for our program and helped us implement new practices that ensure that our mentees are safe and receiving the maximum benefit from our program. MENTOR Nebraska offers us amazing training opportunities and provides a collaborative space for me to network with directors of mentoring programs across the state which has been invaluable to me in many ways but especially in directing our program during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
