Share Your Resources on Youth Initiated Mentoring

Levi van Dam, Sarah Schwartz, and Renee Spencer are writing a new book dedicated to youth-initiated mentoring (YIM). Based on the available research in this area, we summarize the insights of almost 20 years of work on this new approach.

And they need your input: the book is supposed to support professionals with the insights and the tools to adopt this promising new way of working.

Have you worked with YIM in the last few years and do you have resources (manuals, good practices, stories, exercises, etc) to share? Please send them to

The book will be published at Routledge Psychology publishers end of this year.
