Hey, an e-mail from the Young Professionals Network of Eastern Massachusetts announced some interesting data and this is it …

“Research conducted in 2010 shows that of the approximately 23,000 youth between the ages of 5 and 19 who have mentors, 77% are of color, while 72% of current mentors are Caucasian.

The MassMentors.org MOC campaign aims to create awareness around the need for mentors of color, identify and provide recruitment opportunities, and offer training and consultations. ”
