Overland Park church to host conference promoting inmate mentoring program
At the event, Roberts will promote Mentoring4Success, an initiative that has paired more than 2,700 Kansas inmates with a mentor to help them transition back into the community. Brownback, who launched the mentoring program shortly after taking office in 2011, will address the participants in the event via a pre-recorded video.
Special sessions will address such topics as “Criminal Thinking and Behavior,” and “Balancing Faith and Practicality with Offenders.”
The conference, “The Mentoring Experience,” is open to the public and registration remains open. Those interested may register at mentors-conference.com or by calling 913-208-6959 or emailing M4Sconf@kc.rr.com.
The location of the event is the Overland Park Church of Christ, 13400 W 119th St, Overland Park, KS. The conference is slated for 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Exhibit booths will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
