Mentoring provides a shared opportunity for learning and growth. In fact, many mentors say they are grateful for the chance to mentor because the experience is more rewarding than they imagined. Are you a mentor? Tell us in the comments below about your experience. Your story may inspire others to get involved.
Maybe you were the one who benefited from having a great mentor. As part of National Mentoring Month, we will celebrate national Thank Your Mentor Day™ on January 25. On this day, we encourage you to thank those individuals who had a lasting impact on your life. Here are a few ideas:
- Contact your mentor directly to express your appreciation.
- Show your gratitude on social media.
- Pass on the lessons you have learned by becoming a mentor to someone in your community.
- Make a financial contribution to a local mentoring program in your mentor’s honor.
And don’t forget to join the conversation with us on social media throughout the month by using #PKPMentors and #MentoringWorks.
