January is National Mentor Month and Jan. 24 is “National Thank Your Mentor Day,” meant to recognize the mentors, tutors, volunteers and helpers in KMC schools and the community.
Mentoring is about helping individuals develop a positive future. It’s almost incredible to imagine the power that one individual has who can inspire another human being by teaching, helping, consoling, loving, lending a helpful hand or simply listening. All of that can alter the course of an individual’s life for tomorrow.
Everyone is a mentor at one time or another. Recall those special individuals in your life who have inspired you and helped you along life’s journey and see the magnitude of their mentoring in your life and others. Find them. Thank them.
The double omegas icon is the symbol for mentors/mentees, especially if you are working with children or young adults. The double omega is an alignment of a large and small omega representing the mentoring relationship between a caring adult and youth seeking to unlock and fulfill their potential. The double omega icon embodies a committment to quality mentoring in all its many and varied forms.
Make a difference in someone’s life – mentor someone today.
