January is National Mentoring Month!
National Mentoring Month is a time to recognize how a mentor can greatly impact the life of a young person. It is also an opportunity to encourage adults to take on the role of a mentor, so that they can develop one-on-one relationships and guide their mentees toward setting goals and reaching aspirations.
Franklin County Children Services sponsors the Friendship, Simba, Malaika and College-Bound mentoring programs for youth who are involved with the agency. Youth who have experienced abuse neglect or other difficult home situations are particularly in need of guidance from strong role models who are willing to spend time with them, sharing their experiences and wisdom.
