Happy National Mentoring Month!

Instead of a “Mentor of the Year” contest, this year MENTOR Vermont invited programs to celebrate “ambassador” stories. We are excited to feature Bonnie & Kada from our program! Read about them and other terrific mentoring pairs from around the state right here https://www.mentorvt.org/ambassadors-of-mentoring/

(Please RSVP by Noon on Friday, 1/17)

Where: Capitol Plaza Hotel & the Vermont Statehouse
When: Wednesday, January 22, 2020 – 9:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

This annual event, convened by MENTOR Vermont and the Program Leadership Council, brings together youth mentees, mentors, legislators, and supporters to officially mark January as Mentoring Month in Vermont, and recognize the 140 mentoring programs and the 2,300 mentor and mentee matches they support from across the state.

Visit the Mentoring Celebration page for more information.

Invite Your Legislators to Lunch!

If you and participants are planning to attend the lunchtime portion of the event, we encourage you to invite your local legislators to join us. Back in December we sent every state legislator a Save the Date for the event, so this will be a reminder/official invitation coming directly from one of their constituents. If you have a specific mentor and mentee who are attending the event and are interested in helping, we encourage you to work with them on sending an invitation too.

Find your local representatives and senators here on the Vermont legislator directory page.
