The Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern PA
The Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern PA (MPSWPA) recruits, trains, and prepares volunteers to make positive impacts on local youth through a network of 146 local mentoring programs. The partnership’s education curriculum covers topics that are vital to the mentor-mentee relationship, such as communication skills, cultural diversity, and setting boundaries, so that mentors can offer the best support possible to the youth they're paired with. Annually, more than 1,400 mentors complete the training process and go on to connect with local youth through programs such as the Promise Coaches campaign, which helps local high-school students graduate. Additionally, the MPSWPA consults with mentoring programs to streamline their processes and improve results.
