Racial Justice, Inclusion & Equity

MENTOR New York's Racial Equity Framework and the Amplify Equity Toolkit aim to advance racial justice, inclusion, and equity within the mentoring movement. Explore these and other program resources focused on racial equity and cultural respect, in addition to panel discussions featuring youth and experts in the field.

Envisioning a More
Equitable Future

Building on our framework, the Amplify Equity Kit is tailored to foster racial justice and equity through a series of micro-lessons. Uncover fresh perspectives, new opportunities, and ready-to-implement practices for your youth-serving program. Join a learning cohort to connect and collaborate with fellow professionals and receive support from our team.

Introducing the Racial Equity Framework

You can take proactive steps to promote racial equity and inclusion in your school, company, or organization. To guide this important work, we developed the Racial Equity Framework with input from Black leaders in the mentoring movement; Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) experts; and MENTOR National.

Elevating Youth Voice

Mentors can empower their mentees to engage in advocacy and become the next generation of civic leaders. This youth-led discussion, featuring Youth Advocates for Mentoring, highlights the role young people play in driving positive change.

Young advocates join MENTOR New York CEO Brenda Jimenez to share insights into their work and how adults can support these crucial initiatives in our state.
