Description

Mentor New York’s conference Youth Day is a full-day, college-immersion experience for youth in middle school and high school mentoring programs to explore their passions and look forward to successful futures. Admission is free to mentoring programs and both breakfast and lunch will be served!


CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

The College Experience

Youth will experience an interactive session with LIU Post student athletes and students. They will hear about the student’s college experience. Athletes will share the realities of balancing academics with their sports team demands and the experience of living on a college campus. All mentees will have the opportunity to ask questions and discover what being a college student is like.

Exploring Passions

Each mentee will have the opportunity to attend a workshop of their choice. Each 50-minute workshop will delve into a different skill or topic allowing youth to explore a passion or something new. A look at this year’s workshops:

  • Beyond the Piggy Bank: Budgeting Money 101 with Bethpage Federal Credit Union

  • The ABC’s of Acting with Northport Plays, Inc
