This year’s 11th annual National Mentoring Summit will focus on Rising to the Moment and all the ways our relationship-centered movement has evolved, adapted, and been there for young people. We’ll bring together the nationwide mentoring movement, including practitioners, researchers, philanthropic investors, youth leaders, government and civic leaders, and MENTOR’s local Affiliates for our annual opportunity to advance a collective mentoring agenda, strengthen programs and practices, and collaborate to support positive youth development through mentoring.

This year will certainly look and feel different because we will be gathering virtually, but it will still reflect the critical power of relationships. It will also highlight the resourcefulness, innovation, and resilience of the movement in showing up for each other so we can show up with everything we’ve got for our young people.

Here is a video from last year’s Summit.


Now, more than ever, we must learn from each other, expand the movement, and ensure relationships are prioritized and responsive to our young people and our time.
