January is National Mentoring Month

We're kicking off the New Year with the sixteenth annual National Mentoring Month!

National Mentoring Month focuses national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us can work together to increase the number of mentors to help ensure positive outcomes for our young people. This campaign celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives.

MENTOR's “If You Mentor Me…” video below explores the ways in which mentors positively impact the lives of their mentees. Watch the video to see how becoming a mentor in real life can improve the lives of 9 million American youth growing up without a mentor today.
