Celebrate ‘Thank Your Mentor Day’

Jan 21, 2016

National Mentoring Month would not be possible without the extraordinary efforts of all mentors, past and present, across the nation. To honor those that have gone above and beyond, we are celebrating national Thank Your Mentor Day™ today, January 21.

On this day, you are encouraged to reach out to thank or honor those individuals who have and had a lasting, positive impact on your life.

Looking for ideas to thank your mentor? Here are a few:

  1. Contact your mentor directly to express your appreciation.
  2. Express your gratitude on social media.
  3. Pass on the lessons you have learned by becoming a mentor to someone in your community.
  4. Make a financial contribution to a local mentoring program in your mentor’s honor.
  5. Download an official National Mentoring Month e-card to share with your mentor. 

And don’t forget to join the conversation with us on social media throughout the month by using #PKPMentors and #MentoringWorks.
