Mayor's Mentoring Movement

Are you ready to join the movement?


Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the City of Boston joined forces with Mass Mentoring Partnership in 2014 to create the Mayor’s Mentoring Movement, an exciting initiative to increase the number of empowering relationships for youth in Boston.

With the goal of creating consistent and enduring relationships that will help young people succeed, the Mayor’s Mentoring Movement has already exceeded its initial goal of recruiting at least 1,000 caring adult mentors to support young people in Boston. Now, we are working with the Mayor's office and our program partners to create even more of these relationships across the city!


This effort supports both boys and girls, ages 7 - 18+, understanding that all youth deserve a caring adult mentor in their lives, building on President Barack Obama's My Brother's Keeper national initiative to ensure all young people can reach their full potential. Please join us! Check out the amazing PSA we had with Mayor Walsh and one of our mentees, Fatoumata here

Don't have time to mentor right now? We still need you! Ask Mass Mentoring Partnership about donating time or money to your local youth mentoring organization, or encouraging people at your place of employment to get involved. Please contact Beth Fraster at  to discuss how to help.

Creating empowering youth-adult relationships, like mentorship, can take on many forms. In the end, if we all work together to support mentoring, the overall impact will positively support our youth.
