Upcoming Professional Development Workshops
The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota (MPM) offers technical assistance and training support as programs start, maintain and sustain quality mentoring initiatives.
We provide opportunities for mentor programs, workplaces, professional associations, and education, government and faith institutions to gain the support and resources that they need to provide quality mentors for more young people and to enhance the mentoring experience for all.
