As a Phi Kappa Phi member, you’ve made great achievements in your academic career. When you look back over your educational journey, who comes to mind? Was it a science or math teacher who encouraged you to work hard to master the course material? Was it a professor or faculty member who empowered you to pursue your dream? Most likely, you were lucky enough to have a mentor who inspired and challenged you to be where you are today.
January marks the 17th annual National Mentoring Month—a month dedicated to celebrating mentors, past and present, who have made an impact in the lives of others.
This impact is evident in research that shows when matched through a quality mentoring program, mentors can play a powerful role in providing students with the tools to stay focused and engaged in school. According to The National Mentoring Partnership, young adults who have mentors are 55 percent more likely to enroll in college.
Join us throughout January as we celebrate the benefits of mentoring as well as the mentors who make a difference in students’ lives each day.
