National Mentoring Month

Everyone has benefited from a mentor at some point in their life. So take a moment to think about who mentored/mentors you. January is National Mentoring Month, which recognizes and celebrates the impact of mentoring — especially on younger people.

Established 2002, National Mentoring Month aims to encourage more people and organizations to become mentors, advance the mentoring field’s legislative goals, and foster meaningful changes for younger generations through mentorship. 

To raise awareness about the need for mentors, there are several nationally recognized events held during National Mentoring Month, including:

  • Jan. 6 — I am a Mentor Day
  • Jan. 17 — International Day of Mentoring
  • Jan. 17 — Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service
  • Jan. 27 — Thank Your Mentor Day
  • Jan. 26-28 — National Mentoring Summit 

TwinStar is proud to support Washington State University’s Mentor & Analysis Program (MAP), which provides consulting services to small businesses and nonprofits to help them grow and be successful.

We are also proud to support both the South Puget Sound Community College Black Scholars Program and IGNITE Program, which provide mentors from the community for their students.

And to the effect of impacting youth, every year we help more than 6,000 local students learn money management principles including banking basics, budgeting, credit and loans, risk management, and investing.

Join us in celebrating National Mentoring Month — whether it’s by thanking your mentor or volunteering to mentor someone yourself.
