Credible messenger mentors are individuals who share lived experience with the youth they are mentoring, traditionally those impacted by the juvenile-justice system. Join this webinar, “The Credible Messenger Model: A Transformative Approach to Mentoring” to learn more about this innovative, community-based, and justice-centered model.

Pioneers of the movement will discuss credible messenger mentoring’s history, and how they see this model evolving and fitting into the broader mentoring landscape. We will explore what distinguishes credible messenger mentoring from other mentoring models, alongside how mentoring practitioners can incorporate it into their own programming.
