FALL MENTORING BREAKFAST FORUM
Mentoring Breakfast Forums are the only event in New York that bring together mentoring professionals. Enhance your professional skills and spend a collegial morning networking with other program managers.
On Tuesday, October 28th From 8:30-Noon our good and generous friends at Ernst and Young will host the fall Mentoring Breakfast Forum at 5 Times Square, 22nd Floor, Room 040 New York, NY
Are your mentors someone a mentee would feel safe asking those hard-to-ask questions about growing up? More importantly, are they comfortable answering questions about sex and sexuality? It is vitally important that young people have someone they feel safe sharing their feelings with. Parents and guardians are not always accessible or objective listeners. At this Forum Jenna Beckwith Messman, Sexual Health Educator at the University of Maryland, will facilitate an open discussion on how we can help our mentors (and ourselves) to become "Askable Adults".
As always attendees will enjoy:
- a light breakfast
- relevant, facilitated table discussions
- plenty of time to network with other mentoring professionals
The Mentoring Partnership of New York would like to introduce a new tool to help mentors as they go through their mentoring relationships. "Matt the Mentor" is a typical mentor; his experiences are relatable to the average volunteer.
