Advanced research shows that quality mentoring practices are a determining factor in achieving positive youth outcomes. Through the Quality Mentoring Assessment Path, or QMAP®, the Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota (MPM) is increasing the prevalence of quality practices in mentoring programs.
Learn how to get started on the QMAP, as well as what to expect along the way. Not sure if your program is ready? The QMAP FAQs can help guide you in the right direction.
The QMAP is a process that uses an online tool to help mentoring organizations extensively assess program management, operations and evaluation methods, based on the best practice guidelines outlined in the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring (EEP).
Along with a Quality Advisory Committee of experienced mentoring and evaluation practitioners, MPM developed the QMAP to raise the quality of Minnesota’s mentoring programs through a structured, systematic process. The goal of the QMAP is to better understand programs’ current strengths and help them identify areas for improvement in order to enhance future program practice and youth outcomes.
