Oklahoma Mentor Day

Friday, January 18, 2019
Wes Watkins Center
N. Washington St. & W. Hall of Fame Ave.
Oklahoma State University, Stillwater

We invite Oklahoma mentoring programs to submit a mentor recognition form for an outstanding mentor to be honored Friday, Jan. 18, 2019, during the seventh annual Oklahoma Mentor Day, to be held at the Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. Registration begins at 9:15 a.m. at the Wes Watkins Center, North Washington Street and West Hall of Fame Avenue in Stillwater.

This marks the third year the event has been held at a university, giving mentors and mentees an opportunity to visit a college campus and participate in hands-on activities hosted by university departments.

Held in conjunction with National Mentoring Month in January, Oklahoma Mentor Day honors outstanding mentors who have been selected by mentoring organizations across the state. The goal of the event is to recognize exceptional mentors from all types of youth mentoring programs and to provide fun, educational activities for the honorees and their mentees to share. 

Oklahoma Mentor Day is presented by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence and its Boren Mentoring Initiative.
