January is National Mentoring Month.
That means mentoring awareness activities and events throughout January with TrueMentors. Thank a mentor, become a mentor, encourage someone to become a mentor and/or volunteer with or donate to TrueMentors.
The special mentoring days this month include:
- I Am a Mentor Day, January 8
- International Mentor Day, January 17
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, January 20
- #ThankYourMentorDay, January 30
TrueMentors is focused on nurturing kids. TrueMentors' community mentoring volunteers are matched with Newaygo County youth between the ages of 5 to 14 years old in a one-to-one mentoring relationship for a minimum one-year commitment. We've got kids awaiting a match.
We particularly need adults as volunteers with TrueBlue Academy, an after-school mentoring program done in partnership with Newaygo Public Schools and the Newaygo Police Department. The program meets once a week on Tuesdays from 3:15 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Newaygo Middle School in Newaygo.
To apply to be a mentor with TrueMentors and for more information, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (231) 924-0641, ext. 109.
You can help support TrueMentors by making a financial contribution to the program; get the details here.
