Successful Mentoring schemes appear to consist of two parts. One part is focused on the new mason or "Mentee", whilst the other part supports the Mentor. From our own knowledge of the Craft we are all aware that no one Mason can know all there is to know about Masonry and so there must be a high level of support from the Lodge, from the Province and from Grand Lodge.
LOCAL DELIVERY BACKED BY CENTRAL SUPPORT
In essence, these schemes focus on the new mason or Mentee in an upturned pyramid which grows upwards from the Mentee, through the Mentor who is the point of delivery, to the Lodge which provides immediate support, to the Province which enables the scheme, to Grand Lodge which is a conduit through which proven practices can be shared.
