Mentor Michigan+ is pleased to announce the availability of financial awards to support mentoring programs in Southeast Michigan to enhance their capacity through the utilization of the National Quality Mentoring System (NQMS).  Eligible mentoring programs must be committed to quality improvement, the NQMS process, and working with a Consultant to reach specified goals.  Mentor Michigan+ is a signature initiative of the Michigan Community Service Commission.  Funding for this grant application opportunity was provided by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.

The National Quality Mentoring System was developed by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, and its network of state affiliates.  Through a guided self-assessment and coaching process, NQMS helps mentoring programs adopt evidence-based mentoring standards and procedures based on the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring.  Programs receiving funding will be matched with a MM+ Consultant to create a tailored action plan that will assist their organization to improve the quality of its services.  Find more about NQMS here:
