National Mentoring Month – January 2022

Tuesday, 11 January 2022 07:05

In celebration of National Mentoring Month, we are highlighting some of our favorite articles. From mentoring youth in programs, to young professionals in the field, mentoring is an important development strategy. Check out the resources below and think about how you can incorporate mentoring at all levels.

While January is National Mentoring Month, we don’t have to limit ourselves in celebrating the impact mentoring has on the young people in our programs and the OST professionals around us. Mentoring is a strategy that should be intentionally implemented throughout the year. 

How are you going to celebrate mentoring this month and support others by including mentoring in your work this year?
