Champions of Mentoring Breakfast

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 - 7:30am to 10:00am
Champions of Mentoring is our signature recognition and fundraising breakfast and is co-hosted by the Boston Red Sox. This special event brings together MMP's partners to celebrate mentoring and honor leaders in the field. We look forward to having you with us at Fenway Park on Wednesday, June 17th, as we pay tribute to these amazing heroes among us. 
Last year, we honored our 2019 Champions of Mentoring, David Simas, CEO of Obama Foundation, and the Boston Business Journal, represented by Carolyn Jones, Market President. We also heard the triumphant story of the 2019 KELLY Award scholar, Nia-Mya, a student of the Muriel Snowden International School, and had a special message delivered from her mentor Marisa, matched through Big Sister Association of Greater Boston.

In recognition of their work supporting culturally responsive practices in their mentoring programming, Generations IncorporatedBerkshire Children and Families, and Strong Women, Strong Girls were honored as the 2019 Connolly Tribute winners.
We are grateful to everyone who has supported our mission to widen the access to these youth-adult relationships for all young people across MA. Thank you to the generosity of our friends and supporters! We look forward to seeing you this year! To support, please click here
