Quality Mentoring

We all agree that quality is important. The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota shines a light on the quality practices currently happening every day in Minnesota mentoring programs, while supporting programs in achieving continuous quality improvements. Our ultimate goal is to create the best chances for long-lasting, positive experiences for young people entering mentoring relationships.

Quality Mentoring Assessment Path (QMAP®) raises the quality of Minnesota mentoring programs through a structured, systematic process.  The QMAP allows programs to pinpoint areas for improvement while also validating existing quality program practices. The questions are based on the Elements of Effective Practice for MentoringTM, which outlines program design, management, operations and evaluation best practices and serves as the gold standard for mentoring.  

Programs that complete the QMAP and work with MPM to create an Improvement & Innovation make up MPM's Quality Partners by illustrating their commitment to quality practices. 

Hear from mentoring programs that piloted the QMAP and watch a demo of the tool in our demo video.
