The NMRC is a project of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) that provides resources and no-cost training and technical assistance (TTA) to mentoring programs, to support them in using evidence-based practices to improve outcomes for young people. TTA is provided by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership’s (MENTOR) network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships and experts in the field.
CARS manages and oversees the provision of TTA for the California Mentoring Partnership (CMP) affiliate as a member of the CMP Leadership Team. Within the NMRC network, the CMP is currently the number one state providing TTA nationally. In 2014-2015 alone, the CMP TTA center operated by CARS completed or was in-progress with more than 60 assignments encompassing almost 2,000 service hours. We provide TTA on recruiting and retaining mentors and mentees, effective mentor and mentee training, program design, developing program policies and procedures, program evaluation, and more relevant topics.
