January 2019 is #MentoringMonth

Start the mentoring journey with this special video. Please like and share and help a friend make 2019 the year they become a mentor!

The Alberta Mentoring Partnership presents #MentoringMonth in January 2019 to celebrate and raise awareness of mentoring across the province. Get involved by becoming a caring mentor to a child in need, learning about mentoring resources and training, and growing mentoring programs across Alberta.

Start 2019 by changing a young person’s life. Become a mentor.

Mentoring is a powerful way of lending support to a young person by teaching skills, listening to their perspectives and creating a sense of belonging. Spending time with a young person may seem simple, but science tells us that healthy interactions with supportive adults can boost children’s brain development, mental health, and well-being. Learn more.

It doesn’t take any special skills to be a mentor. If you find yourself reading this, you already have what it takes: an interest in making a difference in the life of a child. Whether you want to volunteer once a week or once a month, there are many mentoring opportunities that fit your schedule.
