JULY 31 Quarterly Report Due
IMP QUARTERLY REPORT
The July report, our Annual Survey of Iowa mentoring programs, is available here.  This is a more in depth survey that will take longer to complete than the regular quarterly surveys. Please plan accordingly to complete by July 31.  It is essential for accurate data on the state of mentoring in Iowa that ALL PROGRAMS complete the survey. 
ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES 
Recent response to the murder of George Floyd is an urgent reminder that the tragedies and realities of racism, violence, and injustice for Black people and communities of color are not new or isolated. They are systemic and impact young people every day.
We have a unique opportunity and responsibility to help youth navigate these traumas by supporting them, caring for them, and facilitating tough conversations. The IMP is committed to being inclusive and supportive of all young people.  We have room to grow and much to learn, but we will continue to walk this journey of learning with you. 
Please reach out to Mary Sheka if you have recommendations or requests for specific materials or professional development.

There are two portals now available for students 13 and over and 12 and under.
