National Recreation and Park Ethnic Minority Society


The Mentoring Program is a professional development program for Young Professionals and First Time Congress Attendees. Many of our nation’s most respected executives, in both the public and private sectors, cite the support, influence and encouragement of a mentor as a contributing reason for their success. EMS is dedicated to grooming Minority professionals for the challenges of senior management positions in the field of parks and recreation, and is firmly committed to fostering mentoring relationships that will prepare our mentees to be the next generation of leaders.
