Reentry Mentorship Program Facilitator’s Guide
The Reentry Mentorship Program Facilitator’s Guide has been designed for community organizations to use to develop mentorship groups of their own that can help support successful reentry. It includes guidance for using tools to assist sponsoring organizations with their programs, such as the reentry mentorship training modules and supplemental materials and resources found on this webpage, evaluation tools, and a considerations guide.
Reentry Mentorship Training Modules
The online, self-paced reentry mentorship training modules cover fundamental topics and key concepts as they relate to mentoring recently released individuals, such as the role of the mentor, the path through the criminal justice system, mentorship goals, setting appropriate boundaries, factors that affect recidivism, and more. They also include references to additional information, resources, and support services to help mentees during the reentry process and provide mock scenarios to help mentors navigate situations they may encounter.
The following resources have been compiled to assist reentry mentors as well as sponsoring organizations locate supportive resources as well as learn more about topics related to the reentry mentorship process.
