Celebrate Youth Voice!
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!
2018 Youth Mentoring Day | Celebrating Youth Voice
Wednesday, January 17, 2018
Massachusetts State House
10:00am - 1:00pm
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 (YMD) 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 discuss how investing in youth can help them succeed in academics, build resilient communities across the Commonwealth and thrive in life. We will also hear from MMP friends and Champions of Mentoring, State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry, Rep. Evandro Carvalho, and House Ways and Means Chair, Rep. Jeff Sanchez who will offer a call to action for everyone. We look forward to celebrating youth voices with you!
