The Iowa Excellence in Mentoring Awards honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to expanding quality mentoring relationships for young people in Iowa through service as a mentor.
Iowa Mentoring Partnership certified programs may nominate individuals who have served as a mentor for at least two years. Qualified nominees possess a compelling mentoring story that illustrates how positive experiences alter the life of a young person for the better.
NBC News is promoting mentoring on air and in social media with a call to action to become a mentor. They will be driving viewers to search for mentoring programs on the national database, the Mentoring Connector. Make sure that your program will show up when potential mentors search for a volunteer opportunity by registering your program on the Mentoring Connector. Programs currently registered should respond to requests for information in a timely fashion as best practice in volunteer management.
