MentorPRO Available in Michigan!NOTE: Over the next several months, MentorPRO will be receiving a variety of significant updates which will allow for a new user interface, additional flexibility and customization options, and state-of-the-art reporting capabilities. It will allow for easier navigation and updated features requested by programs users. As a result, new user enrollment was suspended as of Friday, August 20, 2010.
In order to ensure resources and staff support are available to current program users, current users will be able to use MentorPRO in the interim, and all previously entered data will be accessible in the new site after it launches. The anticipated new user enrollment will resume in Spring 2011.
MentorPRO is an online data tracking and analysis system designed for mentoring programs to better manage their P rograms, manage mentoring R elationships and evaluate O utcomes.
