National Mentoring Summit


The Saphier Events team recently wrapped up the 9th annual National Mentoring Summit at the Renaissance DC Downtown, our 7th Summit! Over 1,300 attendees were able to enjoy over 100 presentations, three main stage plenaries, a VIP dinner at the Library of Congress and an advocacy day to promote MENTOR and the mentoring field on Capitol Hill. We also arranged for a staff retreat with a nighttime trolley tour of the monuments, created and managed the registration site in CVENT and handled all of the logistics for the many fabulous pop up meetings that happened along with the Summit. Planning is already underway for the 10th annual National Summit next year on January 29-31, 2020!

About MENTOR The National Mentoring Partnership

The National Mentoring Partnership's (MENTOR) goal is to provide young people with the support they need to become thriving, productive, and engaged adults as they move through various stages of their life. Only one in three young people will have a mentor in their lifetime. MENTOR's focus is closing that gap starting at a young age. For more information, visit
