The Extensive Reading Foundation’s Mentoring System
The ERF wish to connect people who need advice or help setting up or running their ER programs with people who already have experience. The mentors can offer only advice (as much or as little as they wish) and are not obligated to send materials, make school visits and so on. This is an unpaid, volunteer activity. However, if they wish to, that would be great. We hope the relationship would be longer rather than shorter but this depends on you both. Of course, multiple people can mentor the same program.
Look at this page
and find a program (or two) that you might want to help. Contact them yourself and start mentoring however you wish, or can. There is no need to contact the ERF to ask for permission.
Mentees (those needing help)
1. Please complete this application form
. Your details will appear on the page for mentors to see. Please be as explicit as possible. Write well so you will be chosen!
2. We encourage mentees to write up the help they get and make notes about how your ER program is growing and maybe record it as a blog or as a video on youtube or wherever.
3. If you do get a mentor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will record that you are being helped so that mentors can select a different program
If you cannot access these forms, please contact email@example.com and we will send you a file to look at.
