About the U.S. Department of Education's Mentoring Resource Center

The MRC has been created to provide United States Department of Education Mentoring Program grantees with training, technical assistance, publications, research, and consultation, all in an effort to help their program staff design and implement the highest quality mentoring programs. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, the MRC is a collaborative effort between EMT Associates, located in Folsom, CA, and the National Mentoring Center, located in Portland, OR. Both organizations have extensive experience in providing guidance, learning opportunities, and informational support to youth mentoring efforts. We are excited to join forces in an effort to help U.S. Department of ED grantees work towards both their long-term goals and the specific goals of their Mentoring Program grant.

Over the course of the next year, will be working with the U.S. Department of Education on a number of services that should be valuable to ED Mentoring Programs. These services include initial training events to help programs get off to a good start, publications that will provide insights into implementing best practices, and a number of distance learning and resource sharing opportunities. We encourage you to peruse this Web site further for information about the U.S. Department of Education grantees and the services we will be providing them.
