Share Why You Mentor this National Mentoring Month

Share Why You Mentor this National Mentoring Month

National Mentoring Month is the perfect time to thank your mentor or share why you mentor. We have several programs that give the next generation a mentor to look up to and we wanted to give the participants a platform to share their experiences. So, we kicked off a social media campaign calling for program participants to thank their mentor or post why they mentor.

“Mentoring is one of the best ways to invest in the future you want to see in the world. Not only do I get energy from talking with people about ways they want to grow and innovate for change, but I also get to remind myself about where I’ve been and reflect on where I’m going. It’s important to have companions for your journey that you can be helpful to, but that can also be helping you to continue to learn and grow!” Stephanie Wortel-London, Director of Education, New York Academy of Sciences. Join our National Mentoring Month campaign by posting a picture on your social channels about why you mentor and thanking your mentor. Make sure you tag us in your post. To get one of the signs we created, DM us. If you send us your post we may post it to our social channels. DM us for more information! #nationalmentoringmonth #mentoring #mentor #whyIMentor #ThankYourMentor
