This April, VMP was proud to successfully launch the “Faces of Mentoring” exhibition hosted at University of Richmond Downtown on First Fridays. Thank you to the students, administrators, program partners, and mentoring matches who attended this celebratory kickoff, and to our Bonner scholar Nicole Benites and the University of Richmond-Bonner Center for Civic Engagement team for bringing the vision of the exhibit to life. The exhibition features portraits that matches have made of one another, creatively capturing the spirit of their relationships. Thank you to our program partners Higher Achievement RichmondHenrico Heroes Mentoring Program Ladies of Focus, Youth Life Foundation of Richmond, and Scholars’ Latino Initiative for participating in this project and contributing such fun, creative pieces. If you missed opening night, don’t worry – The exhibition will remain on display through August, and the room can be reserved for meetings and events. All of the artwork can be viewed and purchased here:
