The Jackie Robinson Foundation Mentoring and Leadership Conference (MLC) is the hallmark of JRF’s model program. This year’s conference was held in New York City from February 28th to March 4th . The theme is “Legacy” and JRF Scholars took part in four days of developmental workshops, career exploration seminars, meetings with key public and private sector leaders, cultural and recreational outings and practical life skills classes. The Conference also provided a unique opportunity for JRF sponsors to interact with Scholars in both professional and social settings.
In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the founding of JRF, the 2013 Mentoring and Leadership Conference (MLC) explored the ways in which cultural narratives are woven into individual identity, and how the adoption of JRF core values direct that journey towards a life of excellence through education, leadership and service.
