Nevada Commission on Mentoring


The Commission on Mentoring was established to support and facilitate mentorship programs in the state of Nevada and to work in consultation with the Nevada Department of Education to provide direction and guidance to the State coordinator for mentorship programs.

The Commission establishes model guidelines and guardrails for new and existing mentorship programs and develop model financial plans and protocols related to the management of mentors, mentees, and matches within existing mentorship programs. The Commission may apply for and receive gifts, grants, and contributions, enter into public-private partnerships, initiate an affiliate process, develop and administer a competitive or capacity-building grants program to award grants to mentorship programs, and award grants to mentorship programs. The Commission plans and hosts a statewide mentorship conference and develops an annual report outlining their activities and recommendations.
