The City of Milwaukee will host the first-ever MENTOR Recruitment Fair on Wednesday, March 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the rotunda at City Hall, 200 E. Wells St.

A program featuring Mayor Tom Barrett and Common Council President Ashanti Hamilton will begin at 12:00 p.m. The event is FREE and open to the public.

The MENTOR fair will feature the following organizations sharing local mentoring opportunities for Milwaukee-area youth: Above and Beyond the Playground, America Scores, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee, Crown Me King, Journey House, Lead 2 Change, Project Hope, Running Rebels, Southwest Key, Summit Mentoring, Teens Grow Greens, We are Inspired Mentoring Program, and We Got This.

About MENTOR Milwaukee: MENTOR Greater Milwaukee (MGM) is an advocate for the expansion of quality mentoring in the metro Milwaukee area, and is a resource for mentors and mentoring initiatives. In 2016, the City of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) funded a study to explore developing a MENTOR affiliate in Milwaukee. That study concluded there was an unmet demand for quality mentors in the area. As a result, the City of Milwaukee, MPS, and the Milwaukee Bucks agreed to partner to build capacity among area agencies currently offering mentoring services, increase collaboration, and coordinate recruitment and training efforts.
