I was on a panel this past weekend with Chuck Bomar, who leads CollegeLeader.org. Chuck and I have taught together before and I have great respect.
I love what Chuck said in answer to one question about helping students find mentors. Even though hes been at a large megachurch, he never found a mentoring program effective. Instead, hed simply get to know kids, and get to know adults in the church,and see if he could organically match a kid with an adult based on what he knew was going on in both peoples lives.
Sometimes mentoring programs work but often they feel forced and fizzle because the kids and adults and randomly assigned and its not natural. I love Chucks more organic approach.
