We are thrilled to announce the 2019 Youth Mentoring Research Symposium, a full day gathering for the research community on youth mentoring research, will be held in Washington, D.C. on January 30, 2019. The Symposium is sponsored by the National Mentoring Resource Center, a project of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Click here to view the tentative agenda.
The Symposium offers both new and experienced researchers in the mentoring, youth development, education, health, and related fields an opportunity to come together to discuss the state of the research on key mentoring topics that impact public policy and philanthropy and to learn from each other about cutting edge frameworks and methodologies for conducting stronger research on mentoring programs and relationships.
The format of the Symposium will be didactic as well as interactive, using a combination of panel presentations, facilitated discussions, and workshops led by experienced mentoring researchers who can share key insights regarding methodological strategies and mentoring frameworks.
