Welcome to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) Online Mentoring Program.
Online mentoring, or e-mentoring, is a mentoring relationship conducted via the Internet. The NYSP online mentoring or E-Mentoring program is a mentoring relationship that is established between a student and a mentor and is conducted via the Internet. It is similar to communicating with a mentor face to face, except that is done online using Email or another mode of communication.
E-mail will be used as the form of communication between the students and mentors to connect. As we continue to add components to the online mentoring program, a discussion board will be used to enhance communication. E-mentoring shares the goal of face-to-face mentoring: establishing a trusting, nurturing, positive relationship between the mentor and a young person.
The NYSP Online Mentoring Program has been set up to help support the academic goals of students who are participants of the NYSP program. Mentors may assist students with homework; and to establish a positive, trusting relationship between online adult participants and the students.
Other outcomes we hope to achieve are increasing in positive feelings about technology from the point of view of all participants -- students, teachers, mentors and parents.
Students will need to have access to a computer to participate in the online mentoring program. They may use their school's computer lab, library, or home computer, if it is accessible.
We suggest you plan for 30 minutes a week for participating in this program. This can be at anytime, day or night, that you choose! At the very least, it will mean reading your mentees e-mail and writing e-mail yourself. In addition, mentors should e-mail their students more often than once a week and interact with other mentors to talk about experiences and ask questions of each other.
E-mail exchanges with students will not be accessible by other program participants or the general public at any time. For safety reasons and program evaluation, these e-mails will be accessible by the teachers of this class, as well as the Director of the NYSP Online Mentoring Program.
Parents will also be able to view exchanges between their child and a mentor if they so request. Otherwise, no exchange will ever be reproduced or forwarded to any other person without your express approval.
Ideally mentors would have:
The administrator for the ementoring website will be setting up and email accounts using Epals.com for the online mentoring program. If you have any questions about your account, please email Dr. Joni Flowers.
There are several communication tools that will can be used in the online mentoring programs, such as blogs and connecting to other students around the world who are participating in online mentoring programs.
