  2. Add any notes or questions to your note-taking guide, and begin to prioritize your programmatic needs.
  3. Once you have applied these concepts to your work, if you feel you need more support, contact the National Mentoring Resource Center at: We may be able to offer additional, customized assistance to support your program in a specific area of need or in applying these resources to your work in a more intensive way.
