why mentors
Why Mentors?
  • The Stand & Deliver Mentoring Component provides one-on-one relationships between students and employees of the Medical Center. It is strongly believed that the mentoring process plays a key role in the efforts to identify, recruit, and retain highly skilled and motivated individuals in the health care workforce.
  • The program enables employers to become involved with students at a pivotal point in a young person’s life. The development of a bond of mutual respect and consideration sets the foundation to enable the mentor/mentee pair to explore interests and options to eventually set realistic academic and career goals.
  • In addition, mentors are able to provide students with the opportunity to learn how the knowledge, skills and abilities developed in school realistically relate to the work of work. Given the clear need to focus on the future, student mentoring is a vital link in helping ensure that the students of today become the successful students of tomorrow, providing the mentor with an opportunity to make a difference in a young persons life.
mentoring styles
Mentoring Styles
  • Team Mentoring
  • Several mentors are assigned to a group of mentees taking place in a central location. For busy mentors this “Buddy System” can assure that if one has to miss a session, another can fill in.
  • Team mentoring can offer:
    • Sociability
    • Flexibility
    • Built-In Support
mentoring styles12
Mentoring Styles
  • One-On-One Mentoring
  • Traditional mentoring pairs one person with another. The ability to bond between the mentor and mentee is consistent. Spending time with just one person can help set specific goals based on their own interests.
  • Example: Big Brother/Big Sisters of America
  • One-on-One programs include:
    • Intensive Screening
    • Family First
    • Ongoing Support
mentoring styles13
Mentoring Styles
  • School-Based Mentoring
  • All meetings and activities take place at the mentee’s school. The school pairs with the company or organization that provides the mentors. Activities are usually geared toward academics but older students can work on academics.
  • School-Based Mentoring is characterized by:
    • Built-In Activities
    • Support
    • Structure
mentoring styles14
Mentoring Styles
  • Workplace Mentoring
  • Activities and goals depend on the type of business and employees’ interest. Employees gain release time to mentoring activities. The focus is often on developing technical skills or understanding the workings of the business
  • Workplace Mentoring
    • Unique Resources
    • Real-World Exposure
    • Convenience
    • Company Morale

Mentoring Styles
  • Workplace Mentoring
  • Skills Enhancement

mentoring styles16
Mentoring Styles
  • E-Mentoring
  • On-line mentoring or e-mentoring, is a mentoring relationship conducted via the Internet. E-mail can be the exclusive vehicle for young people and mentors to connect or it can be additional communication tool for those who ordinarily meet in person. Still shares the goal of establishing a trusting, nurturing positive relationship.

City of Los AngelesStand and Deliver

Stand & Deliver is a President’s High Growth, High Wage Training Initiative funded by the Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration.

DOL designed strategic growth initiatives to shift the public workforce system away from participant-focused job training to industry based programs where employers defined and prioritized their human resource needs. The public workforce system supplies a pipeline of workers trained in the right skills and the workers have access to high wage career ladder jobs.

277 applications were received and only one project was funded in the State of California – Stand & Deliver.

Stand & Deliver was a project of the President’s High Growth Initiative which targets disadvantaged minority youth (18-24 years old) for the purpose of meeting the pipeline challenges of increasing the available skilled labor pool; Attracting diverse populations to the high wage, high growth industries, beginning with health care.

The program was modeled after our Health Careers Academy which included our “Program In A Box” Mentoring Kit produced by Johns Hopkins, Cedars-Sinai and 13 other hospitals that were awarded grant funded to establish mentoring programs in healthcare. Participants were provided monthly training on how to duplicate sections of the Academy model.
