Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine what factors influence an effective mentor and mentee relationship. The study was completed at an elementary school in southeastern North Carolina and involved 4 mentors and 2 mentees. The subjects participated in a survey and a follow up interview to determine what factors they felt influenced their relationship and if they felt that they did have an effective relationship. The mentor logs were collected and analyzed for further data. It was concluded from the surveys that the subjects did feel that they had an effective relationship. The factors that were found by the researcher to be the most influential in determining ways to strengthen the relationship were mentor training, mentor’s knowledge of the needs of their mentees, and scheduling time to meet regularly.
