On 4 / 5 October 2017, an International Short Course  was offered on mentoring in Boston, organized by the European and UMass / MENTOR Centers for Evidence-Based Mentoring and the Massachusetts Mentoring Partnership. The Short Course was led by prof. Jean Rhodes and mr Marty Martinez.
Youth mentoring is growing rapidly in the U.S., Europe and across the globe. Practitioners experience a tension between quality and quantity, which needn't be the case if programmes follow evidence-based practice and learn from best practices. The Short Course offered the chance to meet leading experts from the U.S. and Europe to discuss programme models as well as challenges and rewards of adhering to best practices in ways that advances the lives of people. The two-day event offered the chance to gain knowledge about the main topic of the event: Strengthening quality to broaden impact. Practitioners and researchers brought their expertise in all fields of mentoring, such as recruitment tools, marketing for growth and expension, match support, family engagement and more. During the event, scholars talked about a variety of new innovations in the field, like mentoring and prevention science, cultural competences and the integration of youth initiated mentoring in education.
Special feature of the event was the ongoing exchange of the European and U.S. approach in mentoring in methodology as well as organization.
