January is National Mentoring Month

Mentors, in case you didn't know already, January is National Mentoring Month! Yes, that's right, it's the time of the year when people all over the nation focus great attention on 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 to assure positive outcomes for our young people.

I cannot tell you enough times that mentoring works! Not only does statistics show it, but the joy that our young girls experience when they spend time with you, their mentor, proves that the impact is great!

To help encourage others to get involved in the lives of our youth-- our young mentees, I would like to recognize each of you throughout this month. I want to feature each of you, spotlighting your service and highlighting why you chose to become a mentor on our website and/or social media sites. If you are interested in being featured, please send me a short bio about you. Please include things such as why you mentor, what you hope to gain from being a mentor, tell whether you had a mentor while growing up, if so, how did that impact your life. Also, if you would, please send a photo that you like to include with your feature. You may email the bio and pic to
