National Mentoring Month Toolkit & Resources

What if we all decided to turn up our impact?
How would we strengthen our communities?
How would we change the world? 

Change multiplies each time someone is inspired by greater possibilities. It starts with someone like you committing to one act of support, which motivates someone else to advocate for progress. And then it builds, from one connection to the next, until entire communities are moved to action. That’s the power of mentoring — both mentor and mentee grow together, seeing the world through each other’s eyes.

Mentoring amplifies change, one relationship at a time. This National Mentoring Month, let’s raise our voices and make the world a place of opportunity for all. Join us by using hashtags #MentoringMonth and #MentoringAmplifies to share throughout the month!
