2017 marks the 15th anniversary of National Mentoring Month's launch in 2002. Since then, each January has served as an annual kickoff of the widespread movement to connect more of the nation's young people with caring adult mentors.
"Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.
Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity." -- the National Mentoring Partnership
I know mentoring works because I have been involved in mentoring a young Black man from the 6th grade to his freshman year in college. Our mentoring relationship will help him to succeed... in real life.
