National Mentoring Summit

The Eleventh Annual National Mentoring Summit

The eleventh annual National Mentoring Summit will bring together individuals who represent the mentoring movement, including practitioners, researchers, philanthropic investors, youth leaders, government and civic leaders, and MENTOR’s local Affiliates. The National Mentoring Summit is convened by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, and garners support from both the private and public sectors, including a group of national mentoring and youth-serving organizations who serve as Supporting Partners. The National Mentoring Summit is the annual opportunity for the mentoring movement to gather to advance a collective mentoring agenda, strengthen programs and practices, and collaborate to support positive youth development through mentoring.



The upcoming National Mentoring Summit will take place January 27-29, 2021.  Please know that as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continue to evolve, MENTOR and all of the National Mentoring Summit vendors and collaborators, are closely monitoring the situation. MENTOR is absolutely committed to the safety of our National Mentoring Summit attendees, speakers, vendors, and staff. As the pandemic evolves, MENTOR will make a determination if the Summit will be held in person or if it will be a hybrid or virtual event. We are opening our call for workshop proposals at this time so that we can continue to deliver timely and important learnings to the mentoring field. When submitting a proposal, we will ask if your workshop can be delivered virtually as well as in the traditional in person format.


Thank You for an Amazing 2020
National Mentoring Summit!

We want to thank you for making the 2020 National Mentoring Summit such a success!
We are grateful to all of our sponsors, partners, speakers, presenters, and attendees from
across the world who came to hear about the power of relationships and advancing the youth
mentoring movement. Together, we initiated dialogues on how to leverage relationships
in support of advancing opportunity for all young people in the year ahead.
We look forward to seeing you again next year!
