    Meeting the Challenges of Youth Through Mentoring Programs

    in Training


    Today's youth face many challenges, both old and new. How can mentoring programs help leverage those challenges into opportunities?

    Consider the problems of gambling and substance misuse, which are prevalent among young people. For instance, 17% of youth reported gambling 52 or more times in the past year, and the same percentage of youth drank five or more drinks on 12 or more days in the past year, according to a recent study in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.

    The Journal noted that 10% of youth reported having three or more gambling problems in the past year, and 15% of young people reported having three or more alcohol problems.

    On Thursday, August 6, I will discuss this topic with my guest Dr. Jim Kooler. Jim’s career has focused on helping youth become active leaders and resources in their communities. He is the administrator of the California Friday Night Live Partnership, the highly successful youth engagement program that is widely regarded as a landmark state-mentoring program. He has also served as deputy director of the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and director of the Governor’s Mentoring Partnership in California. Jim holds a BA in psychology and a Masters and Doctorate in Public Health from UC Berkeley.

    If you wish to learn more about Jim Kooler's work, visit the California Mentoring Partnership website at www.camentoringpartnership.org, email him at jimk@tcoe.org, or call him at 559-733-6496 ext. 1263.

    How to Start and Build a Cross-Cultural Mentoring Program

    in Training

    How do you start and build a cross-cultural mentoring program? When we think of mentoring programs in the workplace, we tend to think of programs that carefully match mentors and mentees who share some or a lot of cultural similarities.  

    But there’s another approach to mentor/mentee matching and that is identifying and pairing mentors and mentees who cross different cultures, such as mentors and mentees who come from different races, genders, ethnicities, religions, cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations, or nationality. 

    Today I will discuss this topic with my guest Jodi Davidson, Director of Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives at Sodexo.

    Empowering Women Through Mentoring Relationships

    in Training

    Here are some sobering statistics I will discuss with my guest Alison Martin-Books:

    57% of women are targeted for workplace bullying.
    Women make up 51% of the U.S. population but only hold 16% of seats in Congress.
    Only 2% of women think they’re beautiful.
    A girl is bullied every 7 minutes on the playground or in the classroom.
    90% of women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance.  

    Alison Martin-Books, the founder of the Mentoring Women’s Network, will explain how mentoring women can empower them at work and in school.

    The Mentoring Women's Network is a national nonprofit organization that supports mentoring programs for women. In addition, the organization has created a proprietary training and software program to aid in the matching and scheduling of mentors and protégés. Alison is also the author of “Landing on My Feet: Learning to Lead Through Mentoring."

    Closing the "Opportunity Gap" Through Mentoring Programs

    in Training

    How is it that some people wind up on top of the social heap and others wind up on the bottom? This question, which sociologists refer to as social mobility, has been studied for decades. Recently, the prominent sociologist Robert Putnam has published a new book that examines social mobility, income equality and the American Dream.

    What he uncovers is disturbing. Putnam says that social mobility is poised to plunge in the years ahead, shattering the American Dream.

    Why is this so and what can be done about it?

    On Friday, May 29, at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) I will be discussing this topic with my guest Mary Fernandez, the President of MentorNet, a division of Great Minds in STEM™. MentorNet implements a national, guided, one-to-one mentoring program that matches STEM students with STEM professionals in high-quality, virtual mentorships. By the way, STEM is the acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.

    This podcast is produced in cooperation with the University of Massachusetts at Boston's Chronicle of Evidence-Based Mentoring and Vince Reardon.
