Match Activities Week: Celebrating 25 Years of Mass Mentoring Partnership


Match Activities Week 2017 



This year, Mass Mentoring Partnership celebrates 25 years of fueling the movement to expand empowering youth-adult relationships in Massachusetts!


Over the years, we have valued providing programs with opportunities for mentors and mentees to participate in activities they might otherwise not have access to. As we learned in our Mass Mentoring Counts report, Building Futures Through Relationships, relationships are the heart of youth programming and a focus on intentionality is key to the success of programs and their missions. These activities serve as a way for mentors and mentees to strengthen their relationships. 


As we celebrate our anniversary throughout the year, we wanted to designate a special week of match activities for our program partners, mentors and mentees. From February 12-18, mentors and mentees will have unique opportunities to take part in sporting events and visit cultural institutions across Boston and beyond.


MMP has distributed over 1,000 tickets to mentoring programs and youth-serving organizations across the state from the following generous donors:
