Men in Mentoring Toolkit
While recruitment is a statewide struggle, it is an issue that must be solved locally. Men become mentors when they are personally recruited and specifically invited to join a program. While national and statewide recruitment campaigns can reinforce what is said locally, a personal ask has proven to be the most effective method to recruit male mentors.
This tookit is designed to provide program staff and their trained mentor recruiters with language and tips to use when making the ask. These materials take you through the steps to recruit male mentors in a variety of settings and addresses the main components of a complete recruitment message.
