Other Impressions

Intake Survey

Sample dialog with the Youth:

"This survey will help us learn about you and the other youth who are participating in the mentoring program. It is important for us to learn as much as we can about what you want to get out of your participation and how we can improve the program to make it even better next year. Please try to  answer each question as honestly as you can.

There are no right or wrong answers, so please do not answer the questions based on what you think I want to hear. I will be the only one to see how you answer the questions and the answers are confidential."

 


Note to mentor: A copy of this intake form will be sent to your email.

Please complete this form during or soon after the first conversation. These questions are only a guide to help get things started and are not required to be followed if the Mentee is suitably engaged. If you must fill in the Q&A's based only on impressions then that is acceptable and better than nothing but that fact should be noted in the body of the email.
