Upcoming Events for Youth Leaders in Metro New York

This is a quick reminder that it’s not too late to register for next week’s Pastors Prayer Summit (1/22-24 at Tuscarora in the Delaware Water Gap).

You can find details about the Summit and more at the Coalition website (www.CoalitionNYC.com), as well as anouncements about a number of upcoming training opportunities.

Also, as an FYI, below is an invitation to the Manhattan Mentoring Network’s upcoming training.

In His Service,


2007 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for the Borough Networks. In honor of National Mentoring Month the Manhattan Networks will explore African American and Latino Male Volunteer Recruitment and Retention with a renowned expert in the field, Mr. Rodney M. Fuller. (Mr. Fuller is currently the Executive Director of the Male Development and Empowerment Center at Medgar Evers College (City University of New York). He is a leading consultant and trainer for not-for-profit organizations with over 20 years of social service experience.)

There are also lots of new things on the horizon for the Networks (see below)—opportunities to be published and recognized for the work that you do!

Join us on January 18th! (Flyer Below)

Overall Goal of the Networks: 

The Borough Mentoring Networks were launched in the summer of 2001 as an initiative to link youth serving agencies across the 5 boroughs of New York City . The goal of the Networks is to expose the benefits of mentoring, share best practices of youth development, volunteer management, and program management to all of the 5 boroughs. In order to achieve this goal, agencies join together as a coalition, allowing for an elaborate networking system of sharing knowledge, ideas and solutions. 


You do not have to have a mentoring program to be part of the networks.

The Mentoring Networks are coordinated by:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC
