With this data from mentoring programs, MPM is able to provide an in-depth assessment of youth mentoring in our state, articulate the need for increased support of Minnesota mentoring programs and advocate for pro-mentoring policies at all levels. The latest survey was conducted in summer 2012, which captured a full year of program data from 2011. After extensive data gathering and evaluation of the State of Mentoring survey results, MPM is excited to share a snapshot of what mentoring looks like in our state. Learn more.
