Welcome To The Mentoring Partnership of Long Island

MPLI Celebrates at 2015 Benefit

Kirsten Speaking


The Mentoring Partnership of Long Island, with the help of Brooks Brothers, our many supporters, sponsors, volunteers and friends, threw another great party at Brooks Brothers at the Americana in Manhasset. Approximately 300 attendees gathered BB Partyon Friday evening, May 8th to celebrate with other members of the growing mentoring community on Long Island.

This year MPLI's Annual Spring Benefit honored our Leadership Co-Chairperson, Kirsten Heinemann and was always highlighted by the appearance of both of Kirsten's mentors who shared their own personal mentoring stories with Benefit guests. 


MPLI's Annual Spring Benefit at Brooks Brothers has developed a reputation over the past few years as "the best party in town"; however, it is so much more. With your generous support this event provides the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island with funding essential to our continued ability to fulfill our mission.

Since our founding, we have:

  • touched the lives of over 100,000 youth
  • connected 12,000 children with mentors
  • trained over 13,000 mentors
  • assisted over 400 programs with technical support

We have so many of you to thank. Please take a moment and view the list of Diamond, Platinum and Gold sponsors below without whom none of this would be possible. 


You are the ones who allow MPLI to make mentoring work!
