EXPAND YOUR UNIVERSE, MENTOR A CHILD
January is National Mentoring Month
. It is the time of year when our nation spotlights the importance of mentors and the need for every child to have a caring adult in his or her life. When serving as a mentor you not only enrich the childs life, but your own as well.
Places such as Cabrini Connections who are becoming more well-known within its community are seeking more mentors as their student base begins to increase. Cabrini Connections
has been around since 1992, there sole purpose is to get people like you in structured activities with youth living in economically and educationally disadvantaged neighborhoods to make a life-changing difference within these youths lives. How do we do that? All these youth need is to feel loved, needed, and worthwhile. With that alone a child simply being acknowledged and congratulated on their accomplishments can go a long way.
All we need is a couple hours of your time a week to help provide a nuturing environment for these youth. If you have some free time and are up for the challenge, I encourage you to go out and become a mentor. There are tons of mentoring opportunities.
