LEARNING 
Our virtual and in-person trainings, workshops, panel discussions, and Annual Mentoring Matters Conference provides professional development to strengthen mentoring practices, share new resources, and help the field put research into practice. Below are upcoming learning opportunities. 

The Power of Effective Storytelling – 12/1, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST

In this webinar, we will review suggested practices for harnessing the power of effective storytelling for the strategic benefit of your organization. Specifically, we will discuss storytelling approaches for recruiting mentors and mentees, cultivating and engaging donors and funders, and attracting and communicating to develop high-quality partnerships. Register to attend here.

2022 Mentoring Matters Conference - Back to Basics - Spring 2022

The 2022 Mentoring Matters Conference will focus on going Back to the Basics. After nearly two years of continued challenges and setbacks due to racial inequity and the COVID-19 pandemic, it's time to rebuild from the basics by centering authentic relationship-driven approaches with equity and joy as the foundation.

COMMUNITY 
Community events invite Members and Partners of the New York Mentoring Network to engage in a community of practice by facilitating networking opportunities and intimate conversations around timely trends in the mentoring field to elevate shared needs and goals. Below are upcoming networking and community events.

Giving Thanks Network Event - 11/18, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST

This time of year, we are all thinking about what we are grateful for in our lives, and at MENTOR New York, we are thankful to everyone in our community who champions mentoring! We cordially invite you and your team to a participatory, virtual gathering for networking as a way of saying thanks. With fall-themed professional development and mindfulness activities, we'll celebrate your program's and colleagues' triumphs while exercising gratitude and showing appreciation. Email Joie Golomb to RSVP.

Year Kick-Off Event - January 2022

Start your year off with your mentoring community! Where we can discuss our goals and resolutions for our programs, and the movement as a whole. What better way to set goals than when we can hold each other accountable and push for real change and support each other.

End of School Year Event - Summer 2022

Closeout the school year with us so we can celebrate all the hard work and launch into the summer.

Invite your teammates because you will not want to miss hearing from other people's programs and what worked and didn't work for them.

COLLABORATE 
Members and Partners can elect to participate in leadership development or action-oriented groups to explicitly improve a practice or collectively problem-solve to advance the mentoring movement across New York State. Check back for upcoming events.
