February 1-3 the National Mentoring Summit 2017 will be held at the Renaissance Washington Hotel, near our Washington DC bed and breakfast. This year’s conference theme will be “Building Relationships, Advancing the Movement”, as relationships are key to having successful mentoring relationships. Summit 2017 is designed to bring together practitioners, MENTOR’s network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships, researchers, philanthropic partners, and government and civic leaders to represent and support the mentoring movement. What is MENTOR? In pursuit of closing the mentoring gap, MENTOR is a national database of youth mentoring programs that connects volunteers to mentoring opportunities in their community. Summit 2016 was sold out last year, so be sure to get your tickets soon!
Summit 2017 will consist of workshops, sessions, a day on Capitol Hill and more. There will be five tracks to choose from based on your interests and it will provide you the opportunity to connect with others in your track. This year’s tracks are: Advocacy, Philanthropic Partnerships, Culturally Specific Practices, Research and Supporting the Mentoring Match. Some of the sessions in these tracks include, How to Achieve Your Advocacy Goals as a Nonprofit Organization, Rising Stars in Mentoring Research: New Findings From Early Career Investigators, Essential Elements to Consider When Developing a Corporate Youth Mentoring Project, and Finding the Right Mentors: Targeted Recruitment.
