Cheers to Mentoring

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

The annual Cheers to Mentoring event brings more than 150 people together with the goal of raising awareness of the collective impact of positive youth-adult relationships.  Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP) uses this opportunity to present a $20,000 MMP/ALKU scholarship to a young person who has benefited from his/her mentoring relationship and who is planning to attend a four-year educational institution after graduating from high school.

Along with the scholarship, we will be presenting the Founders' Award to Massachusetts First Lady Lauren Baker, who is committed to expanding opportunities for young people across the Commonwealth, particularly those engaged with the Wonderfund through the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.  Prior recipients of the Founders’ Award were Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Andrea Cabral, former Massachusetts Secretary of Public Safety. This program will be emceed by WCVB-5 Anchor and Reporter, Jennifer Eagan. 


Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Liberty Hotel, 215 Charles Street, Boston, MA 02114
