Youth serving programs have a responsibility to ensure that every reasonable measure is taken to ensure the safety of the youth enrolled in their program. Screening focuses on prospective mentors to determine whether they have the time, commitment, and personal qualities to be a safe and effective mentor; and screening prospective mentees to determine if they have the time, commitment, and desire to be effectively mentored. Screening emphasizes keeping participants, especially young people, safe in mentoring relationships.
In this workshop, we will discuss possible wrinkles in the screening process. Participants will receive examples of screening materials much of which can be easily adapted to your program.
