Mentoring Month: January 2020
January is National Mentoring Month!
Since 2002, the National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR) has celebrated the month of January to bring attention to mentoring and the positive impacts that it can have, especially on youth. Each year they seek to:
- Raise awareness of mentoring in its various forms
- Recruit individuals to mentor, especially in programs that have waiting lists of young people
- Promote the rapid growth of mentoring by recruiting organizations to engage their constituents in mentoring
ITEST Program explores innovative methods to increase youth engagement in STEM and ICT careers, and many ITEST projects have included a mentoring component. Below are a selection of current projects featuring mentoring, and publications and resources developed by ITEST projects to support mentoring in STEM education.
