The 2020 Mayor’s Mentoring Alliance Awards will be held on Jan. 17 and nomination applications will be accepted through Dec. 2.
Last year, the Boys to Men program won the alliance’s award for best collaboration in mentoring.
For more than 25 years, the mentoring program Boys to Men has served the Mecklenburg County area by developing and delivering mentoring resources to boys and young men.
“I wanted to create a mentor group that would make young men more productive. There are many mentor groups that have sports like basketball and football,” said Christopher Timothy Fowler, president of Boys to Men. “Playing a sport is not the only answer for some. We provide mentoring, tutoring and conflict management along with home and school visits.”
The Boys to Men Foundation has aided more than 1,200 young men, with hundreds of volunteer mentors lending a helping hand.
Here are the award categories for The Mayor’s Mentoring Alliance:
- Mentor of the Year
- Mentee of the Year
- Peer Mentor of the Year
- Best Collaboration in Mentoring
- Grassroots Mentoring Organization of the Year
- First Responder Mentor of the Year
- Educator Mentor of the Year
The Mayor's Mentoring Alliance is a valuable resource for the mentoring community. The alliance educates mentoring organizations about best practices and mentoring standards, ignites impactful and enduring mentor-mentee relationships and connects Charlotte’s mentoring community.
Registration is open to attend the awards event. RSVP HERE.
