Example: Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research Mentoring Modules

Mentorship is recognized across disciplines in both academic and practice settings as an important contributor to building capacity within organizations and among individuals. There are many definitions and types of mentorship. Mentorship can be spontaneous or formal, direct or indirect, and short- or long-term. Mentoring Modules: An Introduction to Mentorship was developed by Katrina Plamondon for the Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research, provide a foundation for exploring these different forms of mentorship in ways that can contribute to creating a culture of mentorship, and are applicable to any section in this chapter on Youth Mentoring Programs.
