On the Road to MentorCON
Earlier this month, Mobius staff and our colleagues from other mentoring partnerships across the country traveled to Pittsburgh for MentorCON 2016. The conference was convened by MENTOR
and hosted by the Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania
. Things kicked off on Sunday with a box suite view of a Pittsburgh Pirates games versus the St. Louis Cardinals. The next two days were a great opportunity to network, learn, and share from the great work that MENTOR and state and regional mentoring partnerships are doing to further the mentoring movement locally and nationally. We're excited to take what we learned from everyone at the conference and apply it to our work back here in Vermont.
