MENTOR recently re-launched a recognition initiative called the National Corporate Mentoring Honor Roll, formerly known as the Corporate Mentoring Challenge Honor Roll. The challenge was launched by First Lady Michelle Obama in 2011 and has evolved to reflect the totality of companies stepping up to place mentoring at the center of their social responsibility and talent work.
The newly re-launched Honor Roll reflects broad-based support for mentoring, and companies supporting quality mentoring in any way are eligible and encouraged to register. Honor Roll companies know that mentoring is a key strategy to connecting youth to social and economic opportunities while building a strong 21st century workforce. And most importantly, they walk the walk.
By joining the Honor Roll, companies not only receive national recognition of their efforts, they will also have the exclusive opportunity to spotlight star employees walking the walk by nominating them for the newly created Corporate Excellence in Youth Mentoring Award.
MENTOR will recognize 10 employee mentor honorees exclusively from Honor Roll companies, one of whom will be selected to receive the national award at the National Mentoring Summit in January 2018, the annual event convening nearly 1,000 experts, practitioners, advocates, and corporations to advance mentoring nationwide.
