National Mentoring Month '21

Launched in 2002, January kicks off National Mentoring Month! A time to look at the power of relationships to help young people find and follow their passion, strive, in school and thrive wherever they are. Throughout this pandemic, youth and their families have been facing increased anxiety, stress and worry. Our Bigs have been coming up with all kinds of ways to stay connected with their Littles and support them in this time of need. Proving that mentoring right now is more important than ever. Make a difference in a youth's life this year by joining the mentoring movement and sign u to become a Defender of Potential today: Be A Big
