It is with great excitement that the Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota (MPM) announces our brand refresh to showcase how we have evolved as an organization over the past 21 years. Our mission, "To build and elevate the capacity of programs, systems and policies to strengthen youth mentoring relationships," is central to the refresh because it speaks to the work we continue to do with you, our network of 280 youth mentoring programs across Minnesota.

In addition to the work on the state and local levels, MPM contributes to the mentoring movement on the national level as one of 26 affiliates of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. To truly represent Minnesota as an affiliate, we are pleased to announce that the Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota will become MENTOR Minnesota!

Along with the name change, our new logo represents the "heart" of what we do as an organization: providing the building blocks for quality mentoring to ensure that mentoring remains an essential strategy to support generations of young people. 

As an organization that works directly with mentoring programs to ensure quality and promote best practices, the new logo aims to make the distinction between our role as a statewide capacity-building organization vs. a direct-service mentoring program. Our new brand identity also promotes our alignment with MENTOR to support Minnesota programs in the following ways:

  • Recruit mentors locally through national campaigns such as "In Real Life" during National Mentoring Month and the most recent recruitment campaign: the Nike Equality Campaign
  • Help funders understand that MENTOR Minnesota serves a network of programs in Minnesota
  • Manage the roll-out of the new National Quality Mentoring System (NQMS) in Minnesota (Our QMAP quality process was used to inform the creation of the NQMS!)
  • Redesign of our website with a modern, clean look for great usability and accessibility to reflect our brand refresh 

We are excited to continue serving Minnesota's mentoring field with the highest level of quality and to extend our reach to impact systems and policies in support of mentoring programs. To do this is to truly fulfill our mission with you!

Please note: MPM will begin doing business as MENTOR Minnesota during the summer months of 2017 with an official name change planned for the end of the year.
