Mayor's Mentoring Movement

Are you ready to join the movement?


Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the City of Boston have joined forces with Mass Mentoring Partnership to create the Mayor’s Mentoring Movement, an exciting initiative to increase the number of empowering relationships for youth in Boston.

With the goal of creating consistent and enduring relationships that will help young people succeed, the Mayor’s Mentoring Movement aims to recruit at least 1,000 caring adult mentors by the end of 2016, of which at least 10 percent will be City of Boston employees.

This effort supports both boys and girls, ages 7 - 18+, understanding that all youth deserve a caring adult mentor in their lives, building on President Barack Obama's My Brother's Keeper national initiative to ensure all young people can reach their full potential. Please join us!

Don't have time to mentor right now? We still need you! Ask Mass Mentoring Partnership about donating time or money to your local youth mentoring organization, or encouraging people at your place of employment to get involved. Please contact Afi Tettey-Fio at to discuss how to help.

Creating empowering youth-adult relationships, like mentorship, can take on many forms. In the end, if we all work together to support mentoring, the overall impact will positively support our youth.
