National Mentoring Month Toolkit
Everyone has something to give. Everyone has something to learn. Together, these attributes create the foundation for mentoring — learning through others to enable individuals to achieve their full potential.
This campaign was originally initiated in 2002, to promote youth mentoring in the United States. Since then, the campaign has grown with other areas of mentoring joining the cause. We all believe in the positive effects of mentoring. As author John C. Maxwell said, “One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.”
We invite you to unleash the power of mentoring within yourself, your organization, or your community. Celebrate National Mentoring Month with us!
