This year’s conference features Bernadette Sanchez, Ph.D., as Research Keynote Speaker, who will discuss her work involving race, culture, and ethnicity in mentoring relationships. As a contributing author to the Handbook of Youth Mentoring, 2nd ed., and Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series panelist, we are excited to hear more about her important results.
Other plenary presentations feature Debra Chasnoff, President of GroundSpark, sharing information about their groundbreaking educational films, and Patricia Moore Harbour, Ed.D., author and champion of the concept of Community Educators. We are also excited to present a conversation between James Anderson from the Anti-Recidivism Campaign and Roger Jarjoura, Ph.D. from the American Institutes for Research, who will be sharing two different experiences of using mentoring with youth in prison.
