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 two mentors and two programs will be recognized each year at the Virginia Mentoring Awards event, usually held in February or March. 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.
