In July 2013, the Rose Circle Mentoring Network was named a High-Quality Program of Oregon Mentors. This was the first distinction of its kind granted to an organization in the Rogue Valley. This honor was earned upon completion of the rigorous Quality-Based Mentoring (QBM) process piloted by Oregon Mentors in 2012.
To earn this distinction, mentoring program staff members voluntarily participate in a thorough assessment of mentoring services and components essential to building organizational sustainability. Then staff members participate in intensive training and technical assistance from Oregon Mentors’ staff to ensure the program is utilizing the most up-to-date, research-driven practices in its mentoring program and implementing essential components to building long term organizational sustainability.
“The Rose Circle Mentoring Network is an exceptional youth mentoring program,” says Celeste Janssen, former Executive Director of Oregon Mentors (now Institute for Youth Success.) “This organization is a great representation of the quality services offered to youth by QBM graduates.”
