This is a case study of the mentoring program conducted by students of K university in Gangwon Province in 2012 with children from multicultural families as mentees. The aim of this mentoring program was to search for an effective managing method of multicultural mentoring program. Data related to the 2012 multicultural mentoring business was analyzed, 5 participants of the mentoring program were interviewed to analyze the mentoring managing process and types of mentoring activities.
Results showed that in the managing process, especially in the early stages, a lack of applicants and cursory mentor selection process, pre-training contents mostly related to administration, difficulty in matching due to restrictions in distance lead to a start with a problem which was ‘inadequate resources’. In the level of activity there were various problems such as mentees actions of not being punctual and receptive, the distance to the mentoring area being too far which lead to restrictions in activities, in the calculation stage, due to these problems the average hours of mentoring totaled 71.08 which is very little.
There were four types in terms of relationships, active types, effort types, passive type and giving up type. Success factors included mentees personality, competence of mentor in terms of multinationals, proximity and convenience of activity, interest and level of cooperation of mentee’s school and family.
For the effective execution of multicultural mentoring, increased support for the expanding of capability of mentors, more cooperation and interest from the families and schools of mentees, continuous support and management of mentoring activities were suggested. (Kangwon National University)
