Statewide Network Outreach

The California Mentoring Partnership engages in strategic partnership and coalition building, in order to unify and raise the visibility of the statewide mentoring community, as well as to achieve our other goals.

We work primarily via our network of regional and interest-specific mentoring coalitions throughout the state, which enables us to disseminate information and resources to programs, funders, and advocates, and to engage California’s youth mentoring community in advocacy efforts.

CMP also develops strategic partnerships that allow for new infrastructures to support mentoring programs statewide, and we support local programs and coalitions by publicizing funding opportunities as they arise in our Funding Corner.

Additionally, in collaboration with our partnerships and coalitions, CMP publicly recognizes key supporters of mentoring in our state via our Golden Bear of Mentoring Awards.
