Every day, mentors in communities across our Nation provide crucial support and guidance to young people. Whether a day is spent helping with homework, playing catch, or just listening, these moments can have an enormous, lasting effect on a child's life. During National Mentoring Month, we recognize those who give generously of themselves by mentoring young Americans.
This month the Drug-Free Coalition will feature blog posts from some of our own members and their experiences with mentoring. We hope that these stories will inspire and encourage you to get involved in the lives of our youth. Mentors can come in many forms: tutors, church leaders, teachers, coaches or just someone who stops and takes time to talk with and listen to youth. However you interact with youth we hope that you both grow positive ways and continue to help us make Tippecanoe County a safer and healthier place to live, learn and work!
