Our Keynote Speaker...

Our keynote speaker is David Shapiro, the CEO of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. MENTOR leads, supports and champions the quality of mentoring relationships for more than 5,000 mentoring affiliates throughout the United States.  Before becoming the CEO at the national level, Mr. Shapiro was the CEO of MENTOR’s Massachusetts affiliate, Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP).  While there, he successfully launched Champions of Mentoring at Fenway Park, Highland Street AmeriCorps Ambassadors of Mentoring, Mass Mentoring Counts and the Bill Russell Mentoring Grants Program.  Under Mr. Shapiro’s direction, MMP grew by 400%, increased state funding for mentoring programs, tapped into federal funding and distributed $1,000,000 in financial assistance to multiple mentoring organizations and more than 50% of young people were matched with a Mentor, all during his tenure.  Mr. Shapiro is the Board Chair of the Mass Nonprofit Network and volunteers with many nonprofits.  He is a husband, the father of two sons and a mentor to many.  We feel certain you will be encouraged by his story and will be inspired to become a mentor and encourager to a young person!Become an Odyssey Sponsor
