Are you looking to recruit more Mentor Volunteers?  Then don't miss this session!

In this session, you will learn strategies for recruiting mentors through use of the Mentoring Connector.  

The Mentoring Connector is a free national database of mentoring programs. The benefits of having your program on the Mentoring Connector include increasing the visibility of the program and recruiting volunteers. Potential volunteers can use the Connector to search for mentoring programs in their area that align with their interests and skills.

If your program is already registered in the Mentoring Connector, you will want to attend this session to learn about new features and how to maximize this recruitment tool in order to increase volunteers and create matches! If your program isn't currently registered in the Mentoring Connector you will learn why and how to register, so you can begin receiving mentor referrals!

As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
