January 2021 Newsletter

 Mentoring transforms lives: we connect kids to college students through weekly on-campus activities that inspire growth, confidence, and brighter futures.

January is National Mentoring Month. Launched in 2002 by MENTOR National and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, National Mentoring Month is focused on raising awareness for mentoring and how mentoring amplifies change. Did you know that young people who have mentors are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college and 78% more likely to volunteer regularly in their communities? That's the power of one meaningful relationship. And that's why together, with MENTOR National, we are amplifying the possibities of mentoring and it's power to change not only the life of the mentee, but the life of the mentor.

We are proud to join MENTOR National in celebrating and promoting mentoring. We know that mentoring makes a difference. And, we are especially grateful for our mentors and chapter leaders who show up each week. Your effort and time does not go unnoticed. You are changemakers.

  • Are you ready to celebrate Week for the Kids with us? Each day has a dedicated theme to recognize the power of mentoring as we raise funds to support our mission. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to keep up!
