All you need to do is just be there for them

 

January is National Mentoring Month.

All month long we are featuring guest posts from many of our local nonprofits that work with youth and need volunteers to become mentors and tutors. On January 26, 2012, the United Way Volunteer Center invites you to our annual Mentor and Tutor Opportunity Fair from 11:00 - 2:00 at the Omni Hotel. There you will be able to meet in person with representatives from 17 local organizations and fit the right fit for you as a mentor or tutor.

Mentor. Tutor. Pass it on!

Going to the Hope Center every Friday has been one of the highlights of my week. The most exciting aspect of the program is that both mentors and mentees are always looking forward to our activities. The reason I have come to really value the program is simply because I get to interact with the kids in the most fun and entertaining ways. I mean who doesn’t like playing tag or hanging out at the playground?

As Hope Center takes place after school on Fridays, the kids are always full of energy ready to have a blast. All you need to do is just be there for them. It really does mean a lot to them. Sometimes even more than we think. So if you’re thinking of giving back to the community, don’t hesitate to come by and check it out. It’s going to be awesome! I promise!
