January is National Mentoring Month
Full Circle of Lake County, Inc. is celebrating National Mentoring Month with a variety of special events to honor local youth and volunteer mentors. Full Circle is looking for compassionate adults to become mentors to some very special youth. They are asking if you would be someone, that matters to someone that matters.
Studies show that mentoring works! Young people link mentoring to significant life outcomes related to academics, community involvement, leadership and career development. You can be that difference in a child’s life.
Mentoring is at the heart of Full Circle and they have helped hundreds of youth become successful young adults. In order to continue this tradition, They NEED some exceptional adult volunteers to take this opportunity to help a young person and give back to our community.
If you have any questions regarding Full Circle’s entoring campaign, please contact Sophie Garza at 719-486-2400 Ext.13 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also view their website for additional information: LINK.
