Dr. David Dubois will speak at the conference.

Embracing the art of mentoring ourselves, the Over My Shoulder Foundation would like to make you aware of an exciting upcoming event: the 14th Annual Mentoring Conference. This annual mentoring conference will take place on Thursday, April 18th and Friday, April 19th at the Oracle Conference Center in Santa Clara.

While many people believe that mentoring is an effective way to positively impact the younger generations in our communities, few have what it takes to be consistent with sustaining these efforts. For this reason, this year’s conference theme is Making the Most of Mentoring, and it will focus on addressing strategies and teaching skills to help build successful mentoring relationships.

Conference participants should leave the event with valuable information and knowledge to implement into their new or existing mentoring programs. Attendees will benefit from hearing guest speakers David DuBois, Ph.D., and Michael Karcher, Ed.D, Ph.D., talk about the value of mentoring. In addition, participants can take part in 10 pre-conference courses on Thursday and 15 short workshops on Friday to dig deeper into the subject. To learn more about this exciting mentoring conference brought to you by Friends For Youth, please visit the website for additional details.

If you’re unable to attend the annual mentoring conference, the Over My Shoulder Foundation offers a number of events throughout the year to raise the awareness of the positive impact that mentoring can have both cross-culturally and cross-generationally.
