Why is the membership cost dependent on the number of participants served?

To provide organizations with the in-depth support conducive to implementing a Mobility Mentoring informed model on a larger scale, EMPath licenses use of the Mobility Mentoring model and tools based on the number of participants served. In an effort to keep membership costs attainable, as the number of participants served using a Mobility Mentoring informed model increases, the license will expand at a lower cost per participant.

Does my organization have to implement a Mobility Mentoring informed model to join as a Level Two member?

Yes. Level Two membership is available only to those organizations currently implementing or ready to implement a Mobility Mentoring® informed model.

What if my organization decides to implement a Mobility Mentoring informed model after joining as a Level One member?

We understand the decision to implement a new model of service delivery can be challenging and requires a great deal of consideration. If your organization decides to implement a Mobility Mentoring informed model in the middle of your Level One membership term, the Exchange team will be happy to support your organization through this transition. We will work with you to adjust your membership level and prorate pricing accordingly.

What outcomes and data will my organization share with the Exchange?

As part of a continued effort to evolve the Mobility Mentoring model, improve upon shared learning and network benefits, and gather information about the collective impact of the Exchange, all members agree to complete an annual member survey. The survey will consist of questions regarding the number of people served by your organization annually, how you and your colleagues are using and accessing Exchange resources, lessons learned, member satisfaction, etc. Level Two members will also share how your organization is implementing or plans to implement a Mobility Mentoring informed model.

Upon implementing a Mobility Mentoring-informed model for one year, Level Two members will also track and share aggregate programmatic data. This includes basic demographic data of participants served, as well as relevant process and outcome measurements. Sharing data enables members to participate in the Exchange’s Level Two Learning Cohort. The Learning Cohort uses data to track trends, analyze outcomes and discuss best practices for data and research. Level Two benefits include access to two hours of technical assistance and ongoing support from EMPath’s Research and Evaluation team to discuss the data collection and reporting process.

As a Level Three member, your organization will report all of the above in a standardized format and frequency consistent with other certified Mobility Mentoring organizations. For additional information on Level Three data reporting requirements, please contact us at theexchange@empathways.org.
