Did you know that January is National Mentoring Menth? As an organization that was founded because of a passion for mentoring, we couldn't be more excited about this initiative. We can say from experience that mentoring has a powerful and positive impact on the lives of mentees as well as mentors. This month we will continue our mentoring program with our mentees in the DC metro area. Our next big event with our mentees will be a Alvin Ailey show at the Kennedy Center in February. We can't wait to see what our mentees think of the experience. We have seen progress and change in their lives already, and look forward to continuing to see positive progress.
Important dates in National Mentoring Month:
- Thursday, January 14 is "I am a mentor" day - share a post about your mentee or why you love mentoring!
- Monday, January 18 is Martin Luther King Jr National Day of Service - include even a moment of service as you enjoy your day off from work or school!
- Thursday, January 21 is "Thank your mentor" day - send a note or make a phonecall to someone who has been a mentor in your life!
We look forward to seeing what you all do to increase your service, mentoring, or volunteerism this month. See http://www.nationalmentoringmonth.org/ for more information about the month.
