National Mentoring Month 2017


During the month of January national attention is given to awareness about the impact and the need for mentors, as well as how each of us—individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits—can work together to increase the number of mentors and assure brighter futures for our young people.  Honor the mentors in your life – pay it forward, be a mentor!   Check out what’s going on during the month, and we hope you will get involved.
