January Is National Mentoring Month

     National Mentoring Month was created by the Harvard School of Public Health and Mentor. Their goal was to focus national attention on the need for mentors and encourage individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and non-profits to work together to increase the number of mentors. By increasing the numbers of mentors, we will then be able to assure brighter futures for our young people.

     Since its launch in 2002, National Mentoring Month has enjoyed the strong support of the U.S. President and Congress. Former President Bill Clinton, Clint Eastwood, Senator John McCain, Quincy Jones, Cal Ripkin, Jr., Bill Russell and General Colin Powell are just a few  of the prominent individuals who have participated in the program.
