MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership is looking for professionals in the mentoring field to share their work with a national audience at this year’s National Mentoring Summit. The 2020 National Mentoring Summit will continue to explore how relationships are central to success, and building relationships—especially mentoring relationships—are critical for young people to move forward. Workshop proposals are encouraged to explore how effective relationships are part of the proposed topic, and provide attendees with practical tools and knowledge to bring to their own programs, investments and communities. The 2020 Summit will bring over 1,300 individuals who represent the mentoring movement together.
The tenth annual National Mentoring Summit will take place
January 29 – 31, 2020
at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown.
The National Mentoring Summit is the only national convening of youth mentoring professionals, researchers, MENTOR Affiliates, philanthropic investors, and government and civic leaders aimed at collectively strengthening and expanding quality mentoring relationships for young people across the country. Registration is not yet open- watch this space.
Each year, MENTOR invites the nation’s leading philanthropic investors and partners in youth mentoring and those interested in exploring the issue further to connect and learn with hundreds of mentoring practitioners, policy makers, researchers and community leaders. Through interactive workshops and exclusive track programming, participants engage in meaningful discussions, peer to peer networking and invaluable idea exchanges aimed at accelerating solutions to close the mentoring gap in our country.
Note: The Philanthropic Partnerships Track is for corporations, foundations and individual donors only. This track offers two events exclusive to this track’s target audience, however all workshops are open to any attendee through general registration. If you are a nonprofit professional interested in attending some of these workshops, you should register using the general registration process.

Capitol Hill Day (CHD) is a training and advocacy event that capitalizes on the energy and knowledge of hundreds of passionate leaders attending the 2019 National Mentoring Summit. CHD participants will meet with Senators and Representatives from their states to discuss key bills and issues in Congress and the mentoring efforts happening in their communities. This is a great way to advocate for the importance of mentoring, elevate the critical work happening in your community, and ensure that our movement receives funding and support. We strongly encourage all Summit attendees to also attend Capitol Hill Day.
We request that all Capitol Hill Day participants attend the Advocacy Workshop on Tuesday afternoon. At the Workshop, participants will learn and discuss advocacy strategies, strengthen understanding of federal policy priorities, and collaborate with colleagues to prepare for your meetings.
