Measuring Impact in Mentoring

When Seedling Mentor Program was envisioned in 2005, the program was based on research, best practices, and included metrics from the beginning.

Each year, the Board of Directors approved increased resources and directed staff to take the steps needed to ensure that the program was having an impact on children through surveys of the Mentees, Mentors, Schools, and the Caregivers.

Seedling Mentor Program undergoes a rigorous evaluation by an independent professional each year. The results are posted on our website and presented to the Board and other stakeholders.

The Board of Seedling is proud to share them with you. Just click the image to see this last school year’s evaluation by Karen L. Looby, Ph.D.  Our sincere thanks to Dr. Looby for her expertise.


We invite you to peruse the report, and Dr. Looby has included a Primary Outcomes Page that boils everything down to the highlights.

Here are a few quotes from our mentored children…



Trained, highly supported Mentors who feel they are part of a team make a lifelong difference in children’s lives while becoming a self-renewing resource as they share their positive mentoring experiences with others.  We know this is true because we see it happening every day.

Are you ready to change your life in a positive way by entering the life of a child who needs someone like you? We can help you make that happen.

Contact us at Seedling and start your mentoring journey this year.

We can’t wait to meet you.
