Maximizing Engagement and Impact Through Intergenerational Youth Mentoring Presented by: General Motors and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership Join us to learn about General Motors’ intergenerational youth mentoring program called Student Corps. The program pairs teams of 10 high school interns with retired GM executives and college interns to plan and complete community service projects, primarily at neighborhood schools and parks. The students develop teamwork, leadership skills and a community service mindset while working as small start-ups, managing all aspects of their projects from budgeting, planning and problem solving to execution. Program leadership will share the business case for the program, the program design and the impact of the program since its launch in 2013. Panelists:
Presented by Bank of America and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership
This summer, thousands of youth will be entering the workplace through summer youth employment programs and internship initiatives. We have developed this webinar to support the managers of those youth, to prepare them with effective mentoring and management practices that will positively impact youth and the business. The tangible advice that we will share is rooted in the experiences of hundreds of Bank of America employee volunteers who mentor youth, helping to build their self-esteem, develop their leadership skills, and create access to enriching experiences. Considering that 1 in 3 youth are growing up in America today without a caring adult in their lives, managers have an incredible opportunity to change the trajectory of a young person’s life by welcoming them onto their teams, providing clear direction, offering them opportunities to gain new skills and experiences, and coaching them on how to succeed at work and in life. Great management is great mentoring.
Presented by State Street Corporation and Mass Mentoring Partnership In this webinar, we explore how State Street Corporation is using mentoring as a strategic tool in the design and execution of a signature corporate philanthropy program, Boston WINs (Workforce Investment Network). Boston WINs is a new innovative, venture philanthropy approach that provides major investments in five proven nonprofit programs focused on education and career development and couples that with the human capital of State Street to help improve outcomes for Boston’s opportunity youth. Webinar participants will gain an understanding of how State Street is partnering, both internally and externally, to reach these goals, while also focusing on corporate culture, employee engagement, and reputational enhancement. The panel will include State Street Corporation’s Corporate Citizenship team and the Mass Mentoring Partnership’s team who have been supporting State Street Corporation as they execute this new program.
