This section, "Mentoring Aids", contains a sugested programme of Masonic discovery for a Lodge to deliver to a potential applicant, then candidate and, in time, new Mason. It draws on examples discovered by the Rulers' Forum Working Party on Mentoring among the vast collection of Mentoring booklets and experiences shared by Provinces.
Mentoring Aids provide a starting point to support the four stages of Masonic discovery described in Practical Activities in the Guidelines for Mentors section. Many items are available for download, either for direct use or to be refined and expanded for use in a new or refreshed Mentoring scheme. No Mentee will remember everything that is said to him by his Mentor. Many Provinces prepare a series of booklets to support the Mentoring Scheme. These are for use by the Mentor and, subsequently, to be left with the Mentee for their own use.
As with all content of the 3R Library, this section is not prescriptive. It is a check-list that can be used in the preparation or maintenance of a Mentoring scheme, to be augmented with material specific to your Province or Lodge, or moderated to tie in with local Membership Development initiatives, or existing local practices.
Just as it is not prescriptive, this section is not complete. It is a starting point to be added to whenever further material, success and experience is shared with the mentoring community and with the 3R Library.
