Tips for promoting accountability

Never create a rule that you won't do anything about

when broken (e.g.: mandatory trainings, gift giving,

time to return a child home)

• Follow through on all the rules by making participants

accountable (e.g. mentor has to make up a training

via phone conference)

• If you allow people to break even the smallest rules,

it's a sign to them (and other mentors, mentees,

parents) that all rules can be broken
