One in three American young people will reach the age of 19 without having had a mentor of any kind. Mentoring relationships between a young person and a caring adult can provide guidance, support, and encouragement to develop the competence and character of the mentee. It is a critical program element under the WIOA youth program; however, it can be one of the most challenging elements to provide and maintain.

Description

This webinar highlights how top U.S. businesses collaborate with the public and nonprofit sectors to connect youth to transformative mentoring relationships within their communities. We will discuss how local programs can make the case for offering mentoring to youth, and outline the values gained by the business and its employees. 

We will also look at how mentoring aligns with business priorities, the myriad of approaches that companies take to support programs and meet youths’ needs, and how companies leverage their strengths to maximize impact.

Invite your Employer Partners to join the Division of Youth Services and MENTOR for this very informative session that will be full of effective practices and tangible resources you can leverage immediately.
