Leverage and Enlist the Work of Mentors and Other Volunteers to Help Underserved Youth Take Advantage of Existing Summer Opportunities
We are hoping to connect with mentor organizations to learn more from their work as we design and implement a pilot initiative to support mentors have brief, structured, and supported conversations over several weeks that help their mentees get excited about, find, and enrolled in great summer opportunities.
Below is a presentation of the need for, benefits of, and structure of the proposed pilot. We delivered the presentation at a webinar hosted by Mass Mentoring Partnerships for mentor and youth-serving organizations in the Boston area. A video of our presentation can be viewed here. Additional material for the pilot can be found on the resources page of our website.
