Advisory Councils and Leadership
The Mentoring Partnership of New York (MPNY) has a group of mentoring program coordinators who serve on the Providers’ Council. Co-chaired by two experienced mentoring coordinators, the Providers’ Council advises The Mentoring Partnership of New York on issues facing programs, additional needs for strategic thinking and resources, new challenges facing youth, families and mentors and awareness and advocacy needs. They represent a wide range of different mentoring programs from across New York City.
Below are the members of the Provider's Council.
Catholic Big Sisters & Big Brothers / Susan Varghese Good Shepherd Services / Shirley Salomon
Covenant House New York / Kim Cumberbatch Two Together / Bonnie Lichtman
In addition to the Providers’ Council, The Mentoring Partnership of New York is directed by an Advisory Council of committed donors and supporters with experience in youth development and community partnerships. People interested in volunteer work at the strategic level are encouraged to contact The Mentoring Partnership of New York about joining the Advisory Council.
Young Professional Advisory Board
Lastly, in 2004, Zach Boisi and Matt Bonanno co-founded the Young Professional Advisory Board (YPAB) to help young people find those caring adult mentors who can help them change their lives for the better. Each YPAB member recognizes the value a mentor played in his/her life and works with The Mentoring Partnership of New York to help the kids of NYC experience the same benefits.
The YPAB supports MPNY in six key functions:
Our YPAB also produces (and hosts) several AWESOME benefits throughout the year which have seen consistant growth in funds raised for MPNY. We are deeply grateful for their commitment.
