2024 Summer Institute on Youth Mentoring

The 15th annual Summer Institute on Youth Mentoring will be held in-person at Portland State University July 22-25, 2024. The upcoming Summer Institute will address the intentional focus of activities within the mentoring relationship. Sessions with leading scholars will explore how the choice of activities is influenced by needs, goals, and attitudes at the participant level and also by priorities and outcomes emphasized at the program level. The Summer Institute on Youth Mentoring offers an intensive four-day seminar for experienced mentoring professionals to engage in highly interactive discussions providing an in-depth view of theory and research and examining implications for program policies and practices. Ideal participants have several years of experience in the field of youth development and are seeking an advanced professional development opportunity. The Summer Institute is co-sponsored by MENTOR and MENTOR Canada. Featured speakers for 2024 include Allison Cloth (University of British Columbia), Kristian Jones (University of Washington), Davi Lakind (Mercer University), Michael Lyons (University of Virginia), Sam McQuillin (University of South Carolina), Manolya Tanyu (American Institutes for Research), and Alexandra Werntz (Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring).
