The eighth annual National Mentoring Summit will take place January 24-26, 2018 at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown.
The National Mentoring Summit is the only national convening of youth mentoring professionals, researchers, philanthropic investors and government and civic leaders aimed at collectively strengthening and expanding quality mentoring relationships for young people across the country.
Capitol Hill Day, capitalizes on the energy and knowledge of hundreds of passionate and experienced advocates attending the 2017 National Mentoring Summit. On February 1, Capitol Hill Day participants will meet with Senators and Representatives from their states about key bills and issues in Congress, and mentoring efforts happening in their communities. Participants arrive in Washington, DC by Tuesday, January 31 to participate in the Capitol Hill Day training.
MENTOR will train Capitol Hill Day participants to improve and establish relationships with their members of Congress and staff; educate legislators about their work back home, including possible challenges in their communities; and, encourage legislators to support key bills and federal programs.
Each year MENTOR invites the nation’s leading philanthropic investors in youth mentoring to connect and learn with hundreds of mentoring practitioners. Through interactive workshops and exclusive track programming, participants engage in meaningful dialog, peer to peer networking and invaluable idea exchanges aimed at accelerating solutions to close the mentoring gap in our country.
Through the inaugural Summit Fellowship Program, MENTOR offered a limited number of scholarships to mentoring practitioners making a deep impact in the field, but unable to attend the Summit due to financial barriers.
The 2017 Summit Fellowship Program was made possible by the generous support of Founding Sponsor AT&T, State Street Corporation and an anonymous donor.
