National Mentoring Month

 

Capture2January is National Mentoring Month! Spending one hour each week – whether it’s helping with homework, playing games or just hanging out – means a young person has someone to turn to in moments big and small.

Mentoring and tutoring play large roles in United Way’s On-Grade Achievement impact work. In addition to helping students succeed in primary school, studies show that kids who had a mentor are 55% more likely to enroll in college than those who did not.
