Event description

Description

Join Mass Mentoring Partnership and the Highland Street AmeriCorps Ambassadors of Mentoring for a celebration of youth voice at the 12th annual Youth Mentoring Day (YMD) at the State House!


A young person who has a say in the purpose and activities of their mentoring relationships is more likely to be engaged. At MMP, we study and elevate policy and initiatives related to relationships that have a direct impact on dropout rates, school to prison pipeline, college access, and overall behaviors in school.

Youth Mentoring Day is a unique opportunity to convene legislators, youth-serving programs, and young people at the State House to celebrate and highlight the youth voice. We will learn how investing in youth can help students succeed in academics, build resilient communities across the Commonwealth and thrive in life, and our special guest and MMP Champion of Mentoring, State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry will give us a call to action.
