Celebrate National Mentoring Month
2015 Mentor’s Day @ Big Apple Circus
Every year for January the National Mentoring Month, we look for donors who will sponsor our mentor/mentee pairs to an event that we host to celebrate their mentoring relationships. In January 2015, our sponsors brought 250 mentors and mentees to the Big Apple Circus for a night of clowning around. For some mentor and mentees, it was their first time ever going to the circus!

Mentoring’s Night Out: In Memory of Luke Boisi
About Mentoring's Night Out:
Mentor New York is excited to host this event for the 13th year on June 16, 2016 at The Bowery Hotel. The event runs from 7pm-10pm with an open bar, hors d'oeuvre, live DJ, and a silent auction. Mentoring's Night Out gathers several hundred young professionals for a night of celebration and recognition of the importance of mentoring. In the last thirteen years, almost 3,200 people have celebrated with us raising close to $700,000.
Previously known as the Luke Boisi Memorial Benefit, Mentoring's Night Out is an unique event that raises awareness about the importance of mentoring and celebrates the vibrant life of Luke Boisi who tragically passed away at the age of 21. Luke was the brother of Zachary Boisi, the former Director of Mentor New York, and the son of Geoffrey Boisi, the founder of MENTOR - the National Mentoring Partnership.
Mentoring's Night Out is our biggest fundraiser of the year in NYC. This year, our goal is to raise $120,000 for the mission of increasing the number of youth with mentors and the number of safe and effective mentoring programs around New York State. Every year, our Young Professional's Advisory Board and the Host Committee has been a huge help in planning this event and bringing people together.
