Technical Assistance Consulting

Mentoring is good, but quality mentoring is better. By committing to quality improvements, programs can nurture stronger, longer lasting mentoring relationships. Through no-cost program consultation (called technical assistance), MENTOR Virginia works with well-established and newly-developing programs to improve their quality and impact.

Technical Assistance Consulting

Technical Assistance (TA) is an individualized program consultation service designed for mentoring programs that want to improve the quality of one or more aspects of their mentoring program. TA is made available to eligible youth mentoring programs at no cost through support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

Success Stories


    We had to create the foundation of operations for a new e-mentoring program. The guidance, planning, structure, and support was of great value to CYEP.

    ~ Capital Youth Empowerment Program

    I presented the changes we have already made to leadership at Little Lights and they were very impressed. They mentioned, echoing my own thoughts, that this process of TA has really taken the quality of our program to a new level.
