The National Mentoring Summit runs this week in Washington DC

Members of the Grizzlies Foundation will be attending MENTOR’s national summit this week and is one of the few opportunities for those engaged with mentoring to meet and discuss best practices.

The summit begins with a special all day meeting Wednesday for programs engaged in the Quality Mentoring System (QMS) pilot program, of which the Grizzlies Foundation is an exclusive participant. This pilot program will provide the Grizzlies Foundation with assistance from Mass Mentors of Massachusetts, one of the first two programs to test QMS, guidance on improving mentoring programs with which the Grizzlies Foundation currently partners.

Wednesday evening the summit starts in full swing with a banquet at the Library of Congress. Thursday the delegates get to work by attending a number of mentor-related workshops.

Workshops for the summit include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Effective Mentoring in the Age of Social Media
  • Using Advocacy as a Means for Obtaining Funding and Partnerships
  • Developing a Data Structure to Demonstrate Mentoring Impact
  • The Toolkit for Inner City and Urban Youth Mentoring
  • Match Making and Retention
  • And many more! Special celebrity speakers at the summit include South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, NBC Meet the Press moderator David Gregory and baseball legend Cal Ripken, Jr.
