MAAV Marks Youth Mentoring Day at the State House

mentoringMAAV Director Rebecca Mooney and Mentoring Program Coordinator Alison Bryer were thrilled to celebrate Youth Mentoring Day at the State House in January. This event, which is organized by Mass Mentoring Partnership, honors volunteers from around the Commonwealth and celebrates the value of mentoring.

Rebecca and Alison enjoyed hearing Governor Baker speak about his own experience as a mentor, and met up with Alex Castillo-Nunez (pictured here), District Director for Sen. Jason Lewis and a mentor in our program! They also were able to visit the offices of Rep. Paul Brodeur and Sen. Lewis, who have both been strong supporters of our program. Thank you to both Rep. Brodeur and Sen. Lewis for all of your support!

January is National Mentoring Month, and throughout the month, we have been profiling our current and former mentors, and sharing information about the value of mentoring. You can find this information on MAAV’s Facebook page!
