Finding Information about Mentoring

It’s funny how in this dig­i­tal age of ours, there is still a large num­ber of peo­ple who are not able to find what they are look­ing for. I’m talk­ing about peo­ple who are already con­nected to the inter­net, are rea­son­ably inter­net savvy, and are able to per­form searches via Google, Yahoo or what have you.

In the inter­est of help­ing peo­ple find good infor­ma­tion about men­tor­ing, I’ve decided to point out some avenues that I believe will help.

Web­sites and Blogs about Mentorships:

  • Quin­tes­sen­tial Careers — A com­pre­hen­sive career devel­op­ment site with many arti­cles on the sub­ject such as “The Value of Men­tor­ship” by Katharine Hansen, Ph.D..
  • — an online neigh­bor­hood of hun­dreds of help­ful experts, eager to share their wealth of knowl­edge with visitors.
  • —  known as one of the nation’s pre­mier advo­cates and resources for the expan­sion of men­tor­ing ini­tia­tives nation­wide serv­ing young peo­ple in their communities.

Online Men­tor­ship Groups:

Other avenues to con­sider are pro­fes­sional orga­ni­za­tions relat­ing to a par­tic­u­lar area of inter­est. Below are some excel­lent sites list­ing such organizations:

  • Gate­way to Asso­ci­a­tions Online — Main­tained by the Amer­i­can Soci­ety of Asso­ci­a­tion Exec­u­tives, this site pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive direc­tory to Web sites of busi­ness and pro­fes­sional associations.
  • Asso­ci­a­tions on the Net — This site, from The Inter­net Pub­lic Library, lists orga­ni­za­tions that have a Web pres­ence, enabling you to explore groups you might want to join.
  • WEDDLE’s Asso­ci­a­tion Direc­tory — This site lists sev­eral thou­sand asso­ci­a­tions from around the world by their pri­mary professional/occupational focus and/or indus­try of inter­est. Main­tained by WEDDLE’s, a research, pub­lish­ing, con­sult­ing, and train­ing firm.

The above are not the only avenues for find­ing infor­ma­tion about men­tor­ing, but my hope is that the infor­ma­tion above will help guide you or some­one you know in find­ing what they are look­ing for.

Please feel free to com­ment on any of the infor­ma­tion I listed above. Let’s stay strong and keep growing!

If you feel the above infor­ma­tion was valu­able to you, or if you feel some­one else may find this infor­ma­tion use­ful, feel free to share this site with them.
