Crowned Mentoring Model

 

A Crowned Mentor is a caring adult who supports a young person through a guided relationship that will foster the resilience needed for mentees to achieve success as she navigates through adulthood. 

A Crowned Mentor will participate in training to learn essential skills and processes to help build mentees self-awareness, confidence and help her become a stronger leader, and help her set and achieve goals.

 

Crowned Mentors understand they are to support the mentee not parent, judge, or control her life. 

  • Crowned is a community-based 1:1 and group mentoring program. 

  • The mentor and mentees meet in positive, socially appropriate venues, attend appropriate events 

  • Parents/Guardian permission for girls under 18 is required and active participation is also required. 

  • Mentors will undergo a comprehensive screening process: application, interview, criminal background check, and reference checks. Mentors also complete initial and ongoing training on effective mentoring practices. 

  • Mentors commit to at least a one-year mentoring experience; attend Crowned International events with their mentee; initiate at least one contact per week and one contact in-person per month.

  • Mentors focus on positive social, academic, career, and life skills as appropriate for the age of the mentee. 

  • Mentoring activities vary per age group.
