Last week on January 6, President Obama gave a proclamation stating that January 2010 is officially National Mentoring Month in the United States.
President Obama’s proclamation reads “Every day, mentors in communities across our Nation provide crucial support and guidance to young people.” He went on to say that National Mentoring Month recognizes those who give generously of themselves by mentoring.
This Mentoring Month, think of those who may have helped you become who you are today because they took the time to mentor you. . You might also consider becoming a mentor to a child in need of your guidance; keep the momentum going, and honor this year’s ninth annual Mentoring Month by becoming a mentor yourself or suggest mentoring to a friend or colleague!
