Teen Enrichment Network Mentor Program

The teenenrichment network has partnered with Spotsylvania county schools since 2016 with a program developed by the executive director of TEN. We started group Mentoring sessions on a weekly basis which reaches three area high schools consistently. We also guest mentor at four other high schools in the region when requested. Our Mentors, Entertainers and Social media presentations are held at school assembles yearly. We end the year with a large Annual Summit which open to all area schools, and we end the school with a summer bash.

How we listen

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Seeking feedback from people served makes programs more responsive and effective. Here’s how this organization is listening.

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Teenagers in the Greater Fredericksburg Region of Virginia (Caroline County, Fredericksburg City, King George County, Spotsylvania County, and Stafford County).

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    SMS text surveys, Electronic surveys (by email, tablet, etc.), Paper surveys, Suggestion box/email,

  • How is your organization using feedback from the people you serve?

    To identify and remedy poor client service experiences, To identify bright spots and enhance positive service experiences, To make fundamental changes to our programs and/or operations, To inform the development of new programs/projects, To identify where we are less inclusive or equitable across demographic groups, To strengthen relationships with the people we serve, To understand people's needs and how we can help them achieve their goals,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Prior to COVID, we were meeting in person with teens to prepare for a diversity summit. During these meetings, the teens expressed a desire to continue coming together to discuss topics important to them, but without adults present so more teens would feel comfortable expressing themselves. We began developing the Safe Zone to address this feedback. Safe Zone was conducted and monitored by appointed TEN Ambassadors who were specifically trained to run these sessions. When COVID hit, the need for this connection and outlet became even higher and we established a permanent online Safe Zone program. Those who had requested this were pleased with our response.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our board, Our funders, Our community partners,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    Teenagers often feel unheard. TEN gives the teens a platform on which to speak and increase their communication skills. In requesting their feedback, they are given power to help set policy and create programs to further help themselves, their community, and their peers.

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We look for patterns in feedback based on people’s interactions with us (e.g., site, frequency of service, etc.), We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback, We ask the people who gave us feedback how well they think we responded,

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don't have any major challenges to collecting feedback,
