How do I get a 1:1 Mentor to a Waiting (Ready to be Matched) status for my M2T One on One Mentoring Program?

  1. Go to the Mentor Record page and pull up the appropriate Mentor Record. Then, go to the Volunteer Record for the M2T One on One Mentoring program on the bottom half of the page.

  2. Under Registration Process on the lower right hand side of the screen, click on the Completed box at the end of the Statement of Suitability row using the date the mentor was determined suitable to interact with participating minors.


    Each registration step that says “Yes” under the required column must have a date entered before you can advance the mentor to a status of Waiting or Matched. It is important to enter completed dates for your other process steps as well.

  3. Under Registration Process on the lower right hand side of the screen, click on the Completed box at the end of the Approved row. Enter the date that the mentor was approved for the program. Be sure to use the accurate date.

  4. Once you have clicked outside of the Completed box, a window will pop up saying that your required registration processes are complete and asking if you would like to change the status of the mentor to Waiting. Click Yes.

  5. Confirm that the Waiting Date shown is correct and click Save.

  6. The Make a Match button is now activated for this mentor under Volunteer Record Information on the lower left hand part of the screen.

  7. If the mentor is newly enrolled, meaning this is the first time the mentor will be participating in the OJJDP grant funded program, it is important to complete the following steps:

  • Under Mentor Profile, complete the LF: Enrollment Date field. Be sure to use the accurate date that the mentor was approved for participation in the program. We will use this date to calculate how many active mentors you have during a reporting period.

  • :bulb:Optional: Register the Mentor at Mentoring Central using the IMS ID number located next to the mentor’s name at the top of the screen.
