During a special First Friday event on March 5, the Harrisburg Institute awarded $50,000 grants to four new partnerships created among 15 Harrisburg youth organizations committed to working together to increase their mentoring efforts and outreach.
The partnerships – Allison Hill Mentoring Partnership, Mentoring Harrisburg’s Youth, After School Programming Expansion, and Pre-College Programming – are comprised of well-established city organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters, The Salvation Army, and the YMCA, among others.
The Mentoring Partnership of Central Pennsylvania was born of the combined efforts of more than 30 local non-profit organizations with a passion for youth mentoring. The Partnership seeks to provide guidance, ongoing training and support to organizations that provide interest-based mentoring programs to at-risk children and youth.
