TORONTO, Aug. 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, the Canadian Mentoring Partnership (CMP) announced its senior leadership and identified its first order of business: to recruit a strong management team.
Canadian Mentoring Partnership is Canada's first coalition of organizations that provide youth mentoring. Its mandate is to build sector capacity to expand access to mentoring across Canada. CMP was launched by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, the Alberta Mentoring Partnership and the Ontario Mentoring Coalition.
It will be headed by Managing Director, Stacey Dakin, who joins the partnership from Big Brothers Big Sisters, and co-chaired by three sector leaders:
- Matthew Chater, National President & CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada
- Liz O'Neill, Co-Chair, Alberta Mentoring Partnership

"We are actively seeking organizations from across Canada to work with us to promote mentoring," explained Ms Dakin. "Working together, we can empower every young person to fulfil their potential."
Canadian Mentoring Partnership will focus on four areas: research, technology, public education, and the development of regional networks. It will also host an annual symposium, with the next one scheduled for early 2020.
