Did you know that January is National Mentorship Month? Now in its 10th year and spearheaded by the Harvard Mentoring Project, MENTOR and the Corporation for National and Community Service, this year’s campaign “Help Them Get There. Become a Mentor,” focuses on mentoring as a strategy for boosting academic achievement. As a mentor, you help to make a positive difference in the lives of young adults.
With organizations like Empowered Flower Girl, founder Rasheda Kamaria is helping to inspire and encourage young women to embrace their intelligence and motivate them to succeed. Rasheda has mentored young girls during her high school years and now giving back to the community and empowering young girls through her inspirational clothing line and mentoring nonprofit organization.
Whether it’s through weekly telephone calls, a museum visit or just catching a movie, a mentor can become an influential person in a child’s life. By becoming a mentor, you offer kids real conversations and a shoulder to “lean on,” while aiding in preventing risky behavior of young adults.
Make a difference in someone’s life today—become a mentor and gain so much more in the process of giving back. For additional information visit:www.empoweredflowergirl.com. Looking for a mentorship organization in your area? Also check out:
