We are pleased to announce this year’s Muriel Pipkins awardees, Dr. Derek Johnson & Gloria Reyes. The award is given in honor of founder Will Green’s late mother, Muriel Pipkins, who was herself an inspiration to others. Mr. Johnson and Ms. Reyes are former residents of Darbo Worthington and have been instrumental in Darbo and Mentoring Positives’ 15 years of success.

June 5 Event: Growing Youth Leaders

Mentoring Positives has been growing strong, resilient youth leaders on Madison’s east side for 15 years. Join us on June 5 to learn about our new pilot mentorship program at La Follette High School and our summer Off the Block social enterprise internships.

Will you join us? This open-house style community event is free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.

The first of its kind in Madison, our MMSD partnership program at La Follette High School works with a cohort of juniors and seniors who are at risk of not graduating on time. We help them succeed academically through social and emotional awareness, leadership training, and academic support.

On June 5, learn about the new partnership and our holistic suite of youth programs directly from MMSD staff, youth participants, and program supporters. You’ll also get a sneak peek at what’s in store for next year, with information about opportunities to engage with and support this important work.

Wednesday, June 5
5-7 PM
The Spark Building
821 E. Washington Ave, 8th floor
