Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    We envision a future where:

    Every young person in Vermont who would benefit from having a mentor has one.
    Mentoring programs, funders, and legislators are working collaboratively to expand the reach of mentoring in all corners of the state.
    Programs are able to share and draw from resources throughout the statewide and national mentoring networks.
    Mentoring programs are well-managed, have the resources to meet the need, and demonstrate proven models of best practices.
    All across the state, Vermont communities are engaged in a culture of mentoring.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Funding mentoring programs.
    Mobius provides grant funding to start new mentoring programs, and to expand the quality and capacity of existing mentoring programs. These funds include the VT Mentors! grants from the State of Vermont as well as pass-through funding from the Permanent Fund for Vermont’s Children and the A.D. Henderson Foundation.

    Supporting mentoring programs.
    Mobius offers ongoing assistance to mentoring programs by managing a directory of Vermont mentoring programs, maintaining a statewide mentoring database, connecting programs and sharing resources, and forming relationships with partners in the community. Mobius also provides support for programs to ensure that they are meeting the Vermont Core Standards.

    Raising public awareness of mentoring.
    Mobius promotes mentoring stories through media outreach, print materials, monthly newsletters, and through social media and the web, and is dedicated to spreading the word to all areas of the state. Mobius also leads efforts to advocate for mentoring in the community and in the state government.

    Connecting volunteers to mentoring opportunities.
    Mobius maintains an online directory of mentoring programs throughout the state of Vermont. Volunteers can search for programs near them and reach out directly, or contact us if they are interested in more information.
