During this webinar, DOL YouthBuild grantees will learn how the evidence-based YouthBuild mentoring (YBM) model supports alumni engagement, employer engagement, placement, and retention, as well as how DOL YouthBuild programs can develop the YBM model at their sites. YouthBuild programs will also learn how they can prepare for, participate in, and take advantage of National Mentoring Month, which takes place in January, 2020.
Participants will leave this webinar with the following:
- A fundamental understanding of the evidence-based YBM model, and the programmatic, organization, and fiscal benefits of incorporating the YBM model into local DOL YouthBuild programs;
- Applicable examples of how YBM can be used to engage alumni and develop employee partnerships;
- Qualitative and quantitative data that supports and highlights the outcomes of the YBM model at YouthBuild programs already implementing mentoring; and
- Information, resources, and contacts that will help YouthBuild programs develop, enhance, and sustain the YBM model.
