January is National Mentoring Month! It’s an exciting and busy time when mentoring organizations and programs across the nation work to promote mentoring and honor existing mentoring matches.
Mentor Vermont will be holding the annual Celebration of Mentoring virtually this year and the 2021 Vermont Mentoring Ambassadors will be honored at Comcast’s virtual award ceremony on January 26, 2021.
“The January 2021 virtual Vermont Mentoring Month campaign will include many of the elements of past in-person Mentoring Celebrations but will take place throughout the month. Our goal remains the same, to increase public awareness and support for youth mentoring programs, and we look forward to celebrating with you, even if it looks a little different than it has in past years.” – Mentor VT
This year’s National Mentoring Symposium that takes place at the end of mentoring month and is usually held in Washington DC is also going virtual:
“The 11th annual National Mentoring Summit will focus on Rising to the Moment and all the ways our relationship-centered movement has evolved, adapted, and been there for young people…
…This year will certainly look and feel different because we will be gathering virtually, but it will still reflect the critical power of relationships. It will also highlight the resourcefulness, innovation, and resilience of the movement in showing up for each other so we can show up with everything we’ve got for our young people.”
