This is the traditional model of mentoring where the mentor is paired with the mentee.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters is an example of a One-to-One mentoring program.
This form of mentoring matches a group of professionals with a group of people in a structured setting. Examples might include a family or group of adult volunteers working with youth in a church program; or a group of employees from a specific dept. working with students from a local school in a work based mentoring program).
One or two volunteers build a relationship with a group through regular meetings. Girl Scouts and Boys Scouts are good examples of this type of mentoring.
