Mentoring Program

RMI’s mentoring model is based on the Governor’s Mentoring Partnership, “Recommended Best Practices for Mentor Programs”, and professionals who are linked with youth to build Reality Coaching®.  Our model is designed to assist in the development of the next generation of leaders.   

In addition to exposing youth to professional workplaces, they are also required to participate in social environments where they must apply acquired soft skills learned through RMI workshops and seminars.  We believe that the success of students today requires exposure to a continuum of educational opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. 

To ensure the integrity of the RMI mentoring program, we adhere to a keenly crafted group of policies and procedures that provide a framework for program implementation and service delivery to our stakeholders.  They also provide a point of reference as our programs expand to better address the needs of our mentees.  Finally, our policies and procedures provide us with the opportunity to benchmark and subsequently score our performance against these stated guidelines.  Our goal is to provide the highest level of quality service possible.
