About the Campaign: January is National Mentoring Month, a designated time each year to thank current mentors and recruit new volunteers. Here in Vermont, Mobius, Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership partners with mentoring programs and supporters around the state to organize local festivities and celebrate our collective efforts to develop a culture of mentoring, and provide support for young Vermonters in every corner of the state.
The theme of the national campaign this year was “Mentor In Real Life,” which allowed mentoring supporters and mentors to talk about the real-life benefits of mentoring.
Who Organizes National Mentoring Month, Locally and Nationally?
Mobius organizes National Mentoring Month activities in Vermont, thanks to the continuing support of Redstone Commercial Group, and a wide range of other sponsors from the local business community. Nationally, the campaign is spearheaded by MENTOR (The National Mentoring Partnership), the Harvard School of Public Health, the Highland Street Foundation, and the National Basketball Association.
