At the 2023 MENTOR Georgia Summit, we invite you to [re]ENGAGE partners, young people, families, and systems to strengthen the quality and increase the quantity of youth mentoring relationships for Georgia’s young people August 31 at the UGA Center for Continuing Education and Hotel.
Our schools and communities are back to “normal” life after several years interrupted by the pandemic. And yet, young people are experiencing unprecedented rates of mental health crisis, volunteer engagement is flagging, and many old approaches are not working.
At our one-day professional development and networking event, we are driving conversations around how we re-engage young people through mentoring programs and the systems that make up their “village.” Join us August 31at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel for a day packed with learning, connection, and engagement. Registration at this link through August 24th.
Workshop topics range from youth engagement to fund development to focusing on mental wellness among young people. For a full schedule of the day and a list of workshop sessions, download our agenda here.
Rooms are available onsite at the conference venue, the Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel. No special code or designation is necessary for booking. For reservations: 706-542-2134, 1-800-884-1381, or firstname.lastname@example.org
