With the support of the Raikes Foundation, MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR) teamed up with PERTS and City Year to develop and pilot the Growth Mindset for Mentors Toolkit, which offers 17 interactive lessons for mentors that apply the principles of growth mindset to their work with youth, and activities that help show youth that growth and learning is possible.

These lessons cover such topics as:

-What is Growth Mindset?

-How Mentors Support Growth Mindset

-Using Growth Mindset Language

-Reframing Challenges, Failures and Mistakes

This Toolkit features information, tools and resources for mentors seeking to guide their mentees in cultivating perseverance, self-reflection, and positive decision-making, elements of a growth mindset, which can enrich their ability to learn and grow, especially in the face of challenges.
