MENTORING MONTH IN CONNECTICUT

As we celebrate National Mentoring Month, it's important to recognize the unique challenges that COVID-19 has brought to our youth. Across the country, young people are struggling with anxiety, distress, and the destabilization caused by the pandemic. It's a recipe for increased risk of substance abuse and underage drinking. But in times like these, we have the power to make a difference through mentorship.

As many as one in three children in Connecticut could benefit from the guidance and support of a mentor, especially in underserved communities. That's why we are proud to provide resources to programs looking to recruit new mentors, including assets created by our own organization as well as those provided by our national affiliate, MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership.

Let's use National Mentoring Month as an opportunity to come together and support the young people in our communities. Whether you're a mentor or an organization looking for mentors, there are resources available to help make a positive impact in the lives of our youth. Together, we can weather this storm and emerge stronger than ever.
