Girls Group Mentoring Toolkit

This Girls Group Mentoring Toolkit provides the tools, resources and support to create, implement, deliver and evaluate a quality group mentoring program for girls, ages 9-13, in your community. The Toolkit is intended to be used in a range of communities, and can be adapted to the unique values, needs, strengths and challenges that each community encompasses.

Reflecting, Learning & Improving

Why is this important?

Overall, good monitoring and evaluation helps to chart the success of a program—to tell the story of how girls benefit from participating in the program. It responds to the questions:

  • Is the program making a difference?
  • What kinds of changes take place in girls because they participate in this program?
  • Embedding reflection, learning and improvement—in other words, evaluation and evaluative thinking—throughout the Girls Group Mentoring Program is critical to building an information base that supports effective, sustainable programming. The purpose of this section is to describe how to integrate reflection, learning and continuous improvement into a girl’s group mentoring program.
