Mentor Recognition Breakfast – 4 December 2018

Mentor Recognition Breakfast – 4 December 2018
Some of the mentors recognised in 2017.

For the last five years MSN has asked member organisations to nominate their mentors whose work had gone well beyond what would normally be expected of a volunteer for recognition at the annual MSN Mentor Recognition Breakfast.

During that time we have recognised the significant contributions of over 85 individuals mentoring youth in this region, representing over 20 local organisations. In some cases mentors have been recognised more than once for their outstanding contribution and commitment.

This year we will celebrate mentors and mentoring from a different perspective. Our recently announced partnership with Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation and Northern Settlement Services, has shown us just how much more can be accomplished when groups work together.

We have invited a local school and the mentoring group working with them (both MSN members), along with student mentees and recipients of MSN scholarships at the school to tell us their stories. Through them we will explore and celebrate how such partnerships boost our support of youth and the attainment of their educational goals.

We will also take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped us throughout the year.

Put the date in your calendar now and plan on joining us to celebrate mentoring and mentors.
2018 Mentor Recognition Breakfast: 7:30am for breakfast and 8:00am for presentation, Tuesday 4 December at the Paceway. Invitations will be sent by early November.
