Workplace Mentoring: Preparing Youth for Success in the Workforce

January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Thu, Jan 16, 2020 1:00 PM – 2:15 PM EST

Mentoring relationships in the workplace have been shown to have a positive impact on both workplace employees and young people as they begin college and career exploration, and prepare to enter and navigate the workforce. In this webinar, attendees will hear from organizations that are engaging employees from corporate partners and how their mentoring initiatives impact both employees and youth mentees. Attendees will gain insights on how to increase access and opportunities in workplaces for diverse youth in their programs. There will be discussion on the employment gap and the experiences of first generation students, supporting young people to realize their professional and personal goals, and the best practices for cultivating workforce development and essential career readiness skills to ensure that young people are motivated and prepared for success in the workplace and beyond. This webinar is part of the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series facilitated in partnership with MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and our planning team of Affiliates. These webinars would not be possible without the planning team, which includes MENTOR Independence Region, MENTOR Indiana, MENTOR Colorado, MENTOR North Carolina, MENTOR Vermont, and MENTOR Washington.
