In January 2017, The Mentoring Partnership of Southwestern Pennsylvania, TMP, presented us with the challenge of expanding the reach of youth mentoring to include all children in the United States. In the coming seven months, we created:
- EM2025 Framework to guide TMP’s five-year plan in implementing
