Why mentor? Mentoring is done in a wide range of contexts and settings. People in schools often enter into mentoring programs. Businesses offer formal mentoring to new employees. Community leaders will also become mentors. During National Mentoring Month, this is your chance to give back and become a mentor to someone searching for help and guidance. If you have experience with mentoring, why not get involved!
Mentors are not only those who coach and help others, mentors can have a positive impact on the direction of someone’s life. Even if it is a family member, mentoring can help. Think about ways that you might become a mentor in your community, at your school, on a national level even.
