January is National Mentoring Month

Created in 2002 by the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, National Mentoring Month focuses national 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.

National Mentoring Month celebrates mentoring and the positive effect it can have on young lives. The goals are to:

  • raise awareness of mentoring in its various forms
  • recruit individuals to mentor, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people
  • promote the rapid growth of mentoring by recruiting organizations to engage their constituents in mentoring
