Each year Virginia Mentoring Partnership salutes the contributions made by mentoring programs, volunteers, and staff to the positive development of young people in Virginia. The exceptional contributions of mentors and programs is recognized each year at the Virginia Mentoring Awards event. Awards are presented to mentoring programs and individual mentors whose volunteer, community service and civic engagement efforts focus on building and strengthening the lives of young people throughout our state.
On an annual basis, VMP also offers a summit or conference for mentors and program providers. On March 20, 2014 VMP will host the Virginia Mentoring Conference, in conjunction with the Virginia Mentoring Awards event. The theme of the 2014 Mentoring Conference is Learning from Quality Mentoring and will feature a day of workshops on mentoring best practices, mentoring in learning environments and mentoring and academic outcomes.
