Celebrating the Power of Mentoring
Location:OSI-New York
Event Date:January 31, 2011
To mark the end of National Mentoring Month, this panel discussion looks at how the expansion of faith, community, and workplace mentoring strategies can effectively respond to the crises facing young people in black communities across America.

The event features mentor/mentee pairs profiles, a "Who Mentored You" open mic session, spoken word artists, jazz trumpeter (and Open Society staff member) Joe Moffet, and more. Attendees had the opportunity to register to become a mentor with one of the following organizations: Harlem Educational Activities Fund, Mentoring USA and the Mentoring Success Center of Communities in Schools of New Jersey.

Mentoring USA, the Children's Defense Fund Black Community Crusade for Children, and the Open Society Foundations Campaign for Black Male Achievement cohosted the event.
