A mentoring relationship is a powerful way to make a positive impact in the life of a young person. Programs across the city will gather on October 25th for a Mentor Recruitment Fair and share their work as well as ways for adults to get involved.
Join us as we celebrate mentoring in Boston and recognize current mentors who are supporting young people. You'll have the chance to talk with mentoring program representatives from across the city to learn about the many different ways you can connect and support a young person. Our young people need us to guide them and provide the examples they need to see!
Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP) is proud to join with the My Brother’s Keeper Boston and the City of Boston to support young people of color and create more opportunities to help them succeed. My Brother’s Keeper is working across the city to identify and bring down barriers that are keeping young people from reaching their full potential. One of the keys to this work is empowering relationships between young people and caring adults. These relationships are the foundation for young people to gain self-esteem, succeed in school and envision opportunities for themselves that they hadn’t before.
As part of the Mayor’s Mentoring Movement, mentoring programs throughout Boston are in need of caring adults to help provide a supporting relationship for a young person. More than 1,500 adults have answered the Mayor’s call, but there are still many more young people who need mentors. For more information, visit bostonmentors.org.
