Mentoring, in January and Beyond

With President Obama’s latest proclamation of National Mentoring Month, the occasion is underway for 2017 — with My Brother’s Keeper a way that Barack Obama himself will continue to promote mentoring around the country.

As January 2016 and other prior posts have noted, mentoring — like literacy — happens in a variety of settings, on a daily basis.

Still, the month and an annual National Mentoring Summit (this year technically February 1-3 in Washington, DC) offer opportunities to raise awareness and expertise around this cause.

According to the event’s website, “The theme for the 2017 National Mentoring Summit is ‘Building Relationships, Advancing the Movement.’ ┬áThe National Mentoring Summit is the only national convening of youth mentoring professionals, researchers, philanthropic investors and government and civic leaders aimed at collectively strengthening and expanding quality mentoring relationships for young people across the country.”

Resources range from Serve.gov/Mentor to the National Mentoring Partnership, from the Connecticut Mentoring Partnership to New Haven’s Citywide Youth Coalition and LiteracyEveryday.
