Mass Mentoring Partnership Continues to Build Youth Leadership Council Initiative by Orlane Destin, Advocacy Fellow

The Youth Leadership Council (YLC) at Mass Mentoring Partnership brings together youth voices from across the state of Massachusetts and equips students with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities to advocate for mentoring resources and policy initiatives affecting their schools and communities. Though COVID-19 has forced our hand in a lot of ways, we are continuing our work with the Youth Leadership Council at MMP in a virtual setting. Meeting virtually has enabled us to expand our council and bring diverse voices to the table. We are looking forward to working with tomorrow’s leaders to help shape MMP’s advocacy agenda for 2021 and to help us meaningfully connect with youth statewide! Be on the lookout for an announcement of our 2020-2021 YLC cohort!
