#MentoringMonth Week 2 – Start Mentoring!

This week the theme is START MENTORING! Last week you learned about how effective and impactful mentoring is across our lives. This week is focused on signing up as many new mentors as possible: Try our mentor nomination form and nominate a friend or co-worker?

First things first: we need your help in amplifying #mentoringmonth to your volunteers, staff, and mentors. Here is a template email that your CEO, ED, or Volunteer Manager could send to your organization:

Dear [your agency mentors and employees here],
We are excited to let you know that we are promoting “#MentoringMonth” — a province-wide celebration and recruitment of mentors just like you in conjunction with the Alberta Mentoring Partnership
We wanted to let you know that we appreciate all that you do for our agency, and everyday you make a difference in the life of a young person in our community.
We also know that the number one source of new volunteers are the friends and family members of current and past mentors. As such, we wanted to ask that you nominate a friend or a family member (anywhere in Alberta) to become a mentor. (https://albertamentors.ca/mentoring-month/start-mentoring/nominate-a-mentor/)You can suggest that they volunteer at our agency, but there are lots of other featured partners looking for volunteers. Don’t worry. They will only receive one message letting them know that they were nominated.
We also wanted to let you know about all of the different resources, videos, documents, webinars, podcasts and much more posted on www.albertamentors.ca/mentoring-month — Check it out!
Happy #mentoringmonth! Your efforts change lives and we celebrate each of you as mentoring champions. Please flood social media with your powerful stories on “I am a mentor day” January 12th (#iamamentorday), January 17th International Mentoring Day (#MentoringMonth), and January 19th “Thank your mentor day” (#ThankYourMentor).
