2014 National Mentoring Summit: Early Registration Open

The fourth annual National Mentoring Summit will be January 30 and 31, 2014, in Arlington, VA, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott.

The National Mentoring Summit is convened by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and host committee members the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the Harvard School of Public Health, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and United Way Worldwide. It is the signature event for the national mentoring movement that will bring together 700 participants including, practitioners, researchers, corporate partners, government and civic leaders, national youth-serving organizations and the network of Mentoring Partnerships in a forum to explore and advance mentoring’s positive impact on individuals and communities.

The 2014 National Mentoring Summit theme is Mentoring Works and will focus on how evidence-based quality mentoring relationships help young people succeed at home, in school and at work. The workshops will demonstrate the many ways in which mentoring works to support positive youth outcomes by showcasing innovative program models, emerging research, and the nuances across diverse youth populations.

Tommy McClam and Kelly Belmonte of YouthBuild USA have been invited to present a breakout session at the Summit titled “BRIDGE to Adulthood: Mentoring Strategies for Older Youth.” Participants in this session will identify proven practices for mentoring older youth; learn how to develop strategies for working with late teens in their local programs; and gain access to a rich mine of available resources for mentoring a young person on the bridge to adulthood.

Please visit the MENTOR website for updated information about accommodations, plenaries and workshops, sponsors, supporting organizations, and the Honorary Host Committee.
