January is National Mentoring Month. This campaign was launched in 2002 by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership to promote and celebrate youth mentoring. According to MENTOR, research shows that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations.
We believe in the power of mentoring and want to ensure that our young people receive personal support and the resources they need to succeed in college and beyond. During this month, we are finding ways to celebrate, honor and thank our Berkeley Community Fund mentors for their dedication and commitment to our scholars–we are so grateful for all of you. THANK YOU!
