Movement of Youth (MOY) Hosts MENTOR North Carolina Evening of Giving
On October 12, 2018, MOY hosted the MENTOR North Carolina Evening of Giving at the William and Ida B. Friday Center in Chapel Hill, NC. Approximately 250 guests gathered to celebrate and raise funds for educational resources and scholarships for students participating in the award-winning program that serves 500 students annually. The event also served as the announcement of MOY’s commission to launch MENTOR North Carolina, a local Affiliate of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership.
“We are so appreciative for the extraordinary local partnership from across sectors and organizations in North Carolina to put relationships for young people first,” said David Shapiro, CEO of MENTOR. “With proven local leadership before it and in it, MENTOR’s support, the expertise of our existing network, and our growing national partnerships, we are thrilled to launch MENTOR North Carolina with the foundation and momentum to make lasting impact for North Carolina’s young people and communities.”
