Hi Valued Customer :

January of each year has been designated as National Mentoring Month.

In every community there are children at risk, especially when there is no mentor involved in their lives.


Here are some facts to consider:


Today, 1 in 3 kids are growing up without a mentor in their lives.


Over 9 million kids in America grow up without a mentor’s real life guidance.

Why Mentor a young person?

You can make a difference by becoming a mentor in real life.

At risk kids need to connect with someone who cares, someone who will give them attention, someone who will be their mentor!


Please watch this video entitled "Make an Impact: Mentor In Real Life".

For those who are being mentored, it is linked to improved academic, social and economic prospects. For those who are mentoring, the relationship can build leadership and management skills, expand a mentor’s professional network, and provide an empowering opportunity to give back to the community.


You can join the mentoring movement! It's easy to do. Visit Mentor In Real Life to begin the process.

Encourage your employees to be a mentor and after they complete mentoring training, provide them special recognition formally before the whole company by proving them with a
bright gold or bright silver MENTOR lapel pin.
