Mentoring happens in a number of ways and is needed  now more than ever. January is National Mentoring Month

General Colin L. Powell is headlining this year’s campaign and shares, “Nothing is more important to our Nation’s future than preparing our children to lead productive and fulfilling lives. And they need good role models. You can play an important part by volunteering as a mentor. It doesn’t require special skills, just a willingness to listen and to care. You will experience the satisfaction that comes from inspiring a young person to reach for the stars.”
