UPDATE: Mass Mentoring Partnership is now ONLY accepting applications from qualified entrants, who have already secured their 2013 Boston Marathon race entry with the B.A.A.
MMP is the only statewide organization that expands quality youth mentoring throughout Massachusetts. MMP has a high-impact, multiplier effect by working with more than 165 youth mentoring programs across the state, in the creation and support of 20,000 structured youth-adult mentoring relationships. MMP supports and enhances these programs by recruiting adults to volunteer; delivering direct training and technical assistance; advocating for public and private funding for mentoring; heightening the visibility of mentoring and its role in youth violence prevention, closing the achievement gap, and workforce development; and building public awareness about the need for and impact of mentoring.
MMP works to expand quality youth mentoring across the Commonwealth through two distinct strategies: providing services directly to programs with established and startup youth mentoring programs; and building awareness of mentoring and directing resources that build the field as a whole. Programs working with MMP grew their youth served by 17% from 2006 to 2008.
