In the spring of 2016, the European Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring was launched in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands, in the presence of 150 mentoring professionals from all over Europe. A mainly grass-root initiative of strong mentoring practitioners and researchers, with the mission of increasing the quality, reach and visibility of the mentoring field in Europe. We do this in strong collaboration with the UMass MENTOR Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring and the National Mentoring Partnership to learn from their large amount of existing know-how.

Mozambique i Afrika er ét af det steder, hvor FN prøver at hjælpe de unge piger. 46 procent af landets piger mellem 15 og 19 år var i 2015 enten gravide eller mødre.
Men nu har FN lavet en mentorordning, hvor unge kvinder, der selv blev gravide i en ung alder, fortæller unge piger, hvordan de kan beskytte sig under sex.
Ifølge FN var 9294 piger med i mentorordningen i Mozambique. Kun fem af pigerne er blevet uønsket gravide.

Despite their ubiquity, meta-analyses have focused almost exclusively on the impact of formal mentoring relationships. Læs videre “USA: A sneak preview of a new meta-analysis on natural mentoring”
