Each year, the Summer Institute on Youth Mentoring brings researchers and advanced practitioners to PSU to discuss innovation in the field of mentoring. The week-long institute has a highly competitive admissions process and this year we are pleased to welcome leaders in youth mentoring from New Zealand and Canada, as well as from across the U.S. The culmination of the week-long Institute is a special community event, the Summer Symposium on Mentoring Research, which will be held July 27. The community event will feature talks by nine researchers and community leaders including PSU's own Dr. Laurie Powers and Dr. Thomas Keller. PSU faculty, staff and students may attend the community event for free (details and registration are available on our website). Publications and video presentations from previous Institutes are available on the Summer Institute Learning Hub.
