January Is National Mentoring Month


Group Seeks Volunteers to Mentor At-Risk Adolescents



National Mentoring Month (NMM) is a nationwide initiative created by The Harvard Mentoring Project to recruit volunteer mentors for adolescents who are at risk of not achieving their full potential.

Thank Your Mentor Day, celebrated on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, is an opportunity to join others in honoring an important mentor in your life. Millions of Americans are expected to reach out to thank or honor those individuals who encouraged and guided them, and who had a lasting impact on their lives.

See the Harvard Mentoring Project's web site for video clips and written essays from individuals prominent in various fields sharing recollections about important mentors from their childhood and young adult years.
