The Kansas Mentors Gold Star program was developed during 2008 in an effort to provide a safe and effective mentoring environment for the youth of Kansas. This program recognizes mentoring partners across the state who have committed to maintaining a high set of standards to ensure a quality mentoring experience. Developed by Kansas Mentors and its Council of Mentors, these standards reflect guidelines set forth in MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership's Elements of Effective Practice™ (EEP).
Based on the latest mentoring policies, practices, experiences and research, the Elements of Effective Practice™ (EEP) serves as the gold standard for mentoring, outlining program design, management, operations and evaluation best practices. The guidelines were developed and published by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, with the support of leading experts and researchers in the field, state mentoring partnerships, practitioners and federal funders.
