About Us

The Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota (MPM) formed in 1994 as a community initiative to promote mentoring for Minnesota youth. For over 20 years, MPM has been a consistent presence to mentoring organizations throughout the state and leads the mentoring movement to ensure youth and mentors have access to high-quality mentoring experiences.

Our mission is to build and elevate the capacity of programs, systems and policies to strengthen youth mentoring relationships.

MPM supports and collaborates with more than 300 mentor programs that serve approximately 178,000 youth of all ages (primarily 8-18) in mentoring relationships across Minnesota. While growth is a vital component of connecting more young people with mentors, MPM is dedicated to making sure those connections are quality matches, made through quality mentoring programs.

Mentoring Works! Young people who have mentors have a better chance of succeeding and are more likely to make positive choices. Yet, in Minnesota there are an estimated *250,000 young people who need and could benefit from an adult mentor.
