Take a break this summer--you deserve it! When you return, VMP will be here, ready to help you with all your mentoring needs!

Happy Summer from all of us at VMP, including the 
newest member of our team, Elizabeth's son, Henry! He was born on May 30th and has already been in the office to visit, attended his first staff meeting, and chimed in on conference calls. We know Henry will be a good mentor someday! Having a new baby around the office is a nice reminder of childhood, and why we do this work to support kids!

VMP is searching for an AmeriCorps VISTA to serve as Communications & Outreach Specialist in our office! Seven additional positions are available at mentoring programs around the state. Call VMP at 804-828-1536 to learn more, and click here to read the position descriptions!

VMP Hosts MENTOR States Caucus  
From June 22-24, VMP hosted colleagues from MENTOR and 23 other Mentoring Partnerships for a three day caucus in Richmond.

Participants heard from Representative Bobby Scott, the Nonprofit Finance Fund and The Search Institute, as well as David Shapiro, MENTOR CEO and Wim Kooyker, MENTOR Board Chair.

VMP was also proud to have four Virginia mentoring programs present on a panel with Andrea Archer of Altria and MENTOR Chief Program Officer, Tammy Tai. Thanks to Jay Swedenborg, Kala Sommerville, Kim Dupre, and Ashley Williams for joining us to talk to the network about the National Quality Mentoring Systems work!

Do what you do, better!
How would you rate your program's fundraising strategies or evaluation methods? 
Can race, class or other social identifiers affect your relationship with your mentee? 

What does it mean to be a mentor, anyway?

Designed to help you do your job better, VMP offers professional development and skill-building workshops for mentoring program staff, current volunteers and new mentors. We have a great line-up this summer and fall. Sign up today and join other mentoring program staff and volunteers for VMP's next training!
