Celebrate National Mentor Month!
January is National Mentoring Month, celebrating the benefits of youth mentoring across the country.
Every day in communities across the country, caring adults volunteer their time with mentoring programs to create consistent and supportive relationships to young people. There is a powerful mentoring effect that ultimately makes our communities stronger.
The National Mentoring Month public awareness campaign, recognized by presidential proclamation and congressional resolution, is led by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and the Harvard T.H.
Chan School of Public Health. National Mentoring Month not only recognizes the benefits of mentoring
but also acknowledges those who give generously of themselves by mentoring youth as tutors, coaches,
teachers, and volunteers.
