Golden Bear of Mentoring Awards

Golden Bear of Mentoring Awards

The inaugural Golden Bear of Mentoring Awards were announced by the California Mentoring Partnership in January of 2019. This process was initiated by the CMP Leadership Team to aid and support coalitions with their important work of cultivating and acknowledging the pioneers and stakeholders in the field of mentoring.

A call went out to all California mentoring coalitions, and they answered!

We were able recognize 51 California Golden Bears of Mentoring in 2019, including many wonderful businesses and leaders who support, volunteer, and promote their local mentoring programs.

CMP is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Golden Bear of Mentoring Awards!
