Mentoring Journal


We have received the third printing of our highly requested Mentoring Journals, so they’re back in stock! For this version, we’ve simplified the instructions page and included new fun illustrations to give hints about using pages, updated our 101 Simple Activities List, added a new activity about planning (or just thinking about) your future, and reduced the pocket pages to just one, creating a leaner Mentoring Journal.

For those who are new to the Mentoring Journals, this resource offers mentoring matches a structured yet flexible format to enjoy meaningful activities together, increasing the opportunity for meaningful interactions. Sold in sets of two so each mentor and mentee receive their own, by using the Mentoring Journals, they get a reflective, creative and FUN experience; chances to contribute to each other’s Mentoring Journal; and the opportunity to turn memories of a year into memories for a lifetime.

Program staff can also benefit: when your mentors and mentees use Mentoring Journals, your program gets an instrument for monitoring meetings, a tool to assess relationship satisfaction, an opportunity to measure activity levels, and a method to align individual match goals with your overall program goals. 

Good for both 12-month and school year matches, the Mentoring Journal is divided into four sections, with activities that increase in interaction and sharing as the match progresses through the year.

For more information, view a recorded webinar or view the slides from the webinar illustrating the resource. 

Research shows successful mentoring relationships are characterized by meaningful interactions that build trust, maintain boundaries, and keep expectations realistic combined with meaningful activities that are developmental instead of prescriptive.

The Mentoring Journal offers mentoring matches a structured yet flexible format to enjoy meaningful activities together, increasing the opportunity for meaningful interactions.

“Friends for Youth’s Mentoring Journal is the most sophisticated and creative tool I’ve seen for structuring and documenting the life of a match. When fully utilized by mentors, the Mentoring Journal appears to provide a flexible, fun, and engaging mentoring activity, especially for older teens with whom it can be quite difficult to establish a connection. With sufficient training, support, and encouragement from program staff in its use, the Mentoring Journal may prove to be a valuable resource for community and school-based matches alike.”
