January is National Mentoring Month, an annual nationwide campaign dedicated to recognizing and elevating the value of mentorship in our lives.
This month we celebrate the power of these relationships by showing appreciation for the contribution of our current mentors, and doubling down on our efforts to continue to strengthen and grow our network of new mentors who will positively impact the lives of our scholars and Oakland community.
Throughout the month of January, we at Oakland Promise will be recognizing and celebrating our awesome Mentors via our social media campaign, mentor raffles and so much more! Be sure to join our Mentor Facebook Group and like us on LinkedIn so you don’t miss any of the celebrations or your chance to win!
