THE MENTOR NEWS
ISSN 1708-9034

The purpose of The Mentor News, published by Peer Resources from August 2002 to November of 2012, was to provide information about emerging trends, critical issues, and essential resources to persons involved as leaders and participants in all forms of mentoring. Each issue is advertising- and commercial-free.

Typically The Mentor News was a shorter and less comprehensive version of the monthly Peer Bulletin, which is only available to members of the Peer Resources Network. From time to time items from the Peer Bulletin appeared in The Mentor News. (The Peer Bulletin typically includes items about coaching as well as mentoring and peer assistance.)

The Mentor News was a service of Peer Resources available at no cost to subscribers. It was typically delivered by email every 45-60 days. It has been replaced by the SpiritMentor blog. This is also an opt-in-only, free newsletter. Subscriptions are available at SpiritMentor

Peer Resources adheres to a privacy policy that prohibits the use of subscriber information or contact details for any commercial purposes. Email addresses are not revealed or provided to any other sources under any circumstances.

All back issues are listed on this page and are all available for viewing at no charge. Issues are archived offline. To request any particular issue send an email to rcarr@mentors.ca and indicate the specific issue wanted.
