January is National Mentoring Month



There are few relationships in life that are more influential than those between a mentor and a young person.

I know this from both sides of the coin.

You see, I have had many a mentor in my life growing up. A person who took a unique interest in me, fostered my growth and guided me onward. And I've also been a mentor to many as well., paying the experience forward.

Being involved in mentoring has been so rewarding and meaningful to me. In fact, research shows that mentoring is an extraordinary experience for all involved.

January is National Mentoring Month.
Be mentor.
Change a life.
And transform your own.

It's all about the help you give which is returned in other ways. :)

Mentoring is such a wonderful concept and my two favorite mentors were my grandfathers. Too bad modern kids often have little contact with grandparents. They are invaluable.

I agree 100% with the 1st sentence you wrote. Mentors deserve recognition for sure. Love this!

I agree fully - good mentors are worth their weight in gold.
