Monthly Mentor Evenings

The NCTN Promising Practice Series presents detailed descriptions of strategies from the field that are designed to promote the successful transition of students from ABE to postsecondary education.

Our ABE-to-College Transition Project grant required that we have a mentoring component. In 2004, we initiated mandatory, monthly, in-house mentoring sessions in an effort to provide a non-threatening venue for students to discuss academic and personal concerns as they arose. These sessions were facilitated by the Mentor Coordinator and the Program Director / Counselor. Our goal was to create an environment in which the concept of mentoring could be modeled for the students. Furthermore, we wanted students to understand the important role mentoring might play as they moved into postsecondary education and beyond. These evenings have evolved into formal “Mentor Evenings.” 2006.
