Elected Officials for Mentoring

AUGUST 27, 2020, 11:30AM – 1:00PM EST

From their unique position as leaders at the local, state, and national levels, elected officials can make a powerful impact in the communities they serve, especially in the lives of young people. Join us to hear from elected officials from the local, state, and national level that are scaling quality mentoring initiatives, mobilizing their communities, and better equipping young people to succeed through improved school attendance and achievement, high school graduation, workforce readiness, and connection to their communities. Participants will also learn insights from the “2020 State of Mentoring Report”, a report that highlights the need for racial equity in youth mentoring across North Carolina and feedback from mentoring agencies about the tools, resources, and best practices desired to build capacity for high quality direct service and frameworks for systems change.

  • Adriane Alicea, Director of Government Relations, MENTOR
  • Representative Graig Meyer, NC House District 50
  • Commissioner Renee Price, Orange County Board of County Commissioners, Co-Chair, My Brother’s and Sister’s Keeper (MBSK) Orange County
