Same Dates. Same Dynamic Movement and Field Building. New Venue.
Join us virtually for the 11th Annual National Mentoring Summit
January 27 - 29, 2021
We are excited to announce that registration for the 2021 Virtual National Mentoring Summit is now open.
This year’s 11th annual National Mentoring Summit will focus on Rising to the Moment and all the ways our relationship-centered movement has evolved, adapted, and been there for young people. We’ll bring together the nationwide mentoring movement, including practitioners, researchers, philanthropic investors, youth leaders, government and civic leaders, and MENTOR’s local Affiliates for our annual opportunity to advance a collective mentoring agenda, strengthen programs and practices, and collaborate to support positive youth development through mentoring.
This year will certainly look and feel different because we will be gathering virtually, but it will still reflect the critical power of relationships. It will also highlight the resourcefulness, innovation, and resilience of the movement in showing up for each other so we can show up with everything we’ve got for our young people.
Now, more than ever, we must learn from each other, expand the movement, and ensure relationships are prioritized and responsive to our young people and our time.

Through the Summit Fellowship Program, MENTOR will be offering a limited number of professional development scholarships to mentoring practitioners who are making a deep impact in the field but are unable to attend the National Mentoring Summit due to financial barriers. Fellows will receive complimentary admission to the National Mentoring Summit, a $1,000 grant, and access to exclusive networking opportunities. Approximately 10-15 Fellows will be selected pending funding for the Program. Applications open on October 27, 2020 and close on November 20, 2020.
Eligible applicants must be a full-time employee for a mentoring program that is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Organizations must be based in the United States, in operation for at least 3 years and have an annual mentoring program budget (not organization budget) of $150,000 or less. Prior to submission, applicants must submit a request for their organization to be listed in the Mentoring Connector, if they aren’t listed already. Only one applicant per organization will be selected. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected by December 11, 2020.
