National Mentoring Summit

2017 National Mentoring Summit

The seventh annual National Mentoring Summit will take place

February 1-3, 2017

at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown. The National Mentoring Summit is convened by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, and garners support from both the private and public sectors.

Summit registration opens August 24.

The 2016 National Mentoring Summit brought together nearly 1,000 individuals who represented the mentoring movement, including practitioners, researchers, MENTOR’s network of affiliate Mentoring Partnerships, corporate partners, and government and civic leaders. The Summit once again provided an opportunity for attendees to advocate for mentoring during Capitol Hill Day.

This year’s Summit featured four plenary sessions and more than 60 workshops that explored the theme: Connection | Growth | Opportunity.  View full recordings of each plenary session, select workshop sessions, and photo highlights below.
