The Iowa Mentoring Partnership’s Annual Spring Conference provides the opportunity for practitioners from across Iowa to focus on best practices for youth mentoring and youth development. Sessions cover a broad range of topics in program design and program management which appeal to a variety of staff members within a mentoring organization.
Time will be provided to network with colleagues from other mentoring programs along with breakout sessions from which to choose.
Additionally, three longer sessions are offered by national trainers to dive deeper into subjects of quality program design, screening mentors, and mentor support.You may register to attend only Monday afternoon, only Tuesday, or both days.
We are pleased to welcome our keynote speaker, David Shapiro, president and CEO of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, the unifying champion for expanding quality youth mentoring relationships. Under Shapiro’s leadership, the organization has been highlighted by the Social Impact Exchange, the Stanford Social Innovation Review, and Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, and was selected by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to establish and lead the National Mentoring Resource Center. In addition, the organization has launched a National Quality Mentoring System to support mentoring programs. In 2014, Shapiro received an invitation to The White House to engage in a discussion around the My Brother’s Keeper initiative to leverage opportunity for young men and boys of color.
