​Mayor’s Mentoring Alliance: National Mentoring Month 2018

Discover. Connect. Empower.​

 Thank you for celebrating National Mentoring Month with the Mayor's Mentoring Alliance in January 2018! As a recap, we held a series of events that were designed to help our community discover more about mentoring, connect to mentoring opportunities, and empower mentors and mentees alike in honor of National Mentoring Month.


Mentor Mingle

This event connected those interested in becoming a mentor, but weren't sure where to start. During the mingle, potential mentors met with other mentors to learn about what becoming a mentor means, and networked and connected with agencies and other partners to learn about their work and sign up to become a mentor.


Mentor Gala


Local mentors and mentees were invited to join us for a celebration at the Mint Museum to honor and celebrate the impact of mentorship in our community. During the event, the Mayor's Mentoring Alliance presented awards to deserving mentors, mentees, mentoring agencies and organizations that support mentoring.

Awards were given out in the following categories:

  • Mentor of the Year
  • Mentee of the Year
  • Group Mentors of the Year
